Re: greylisting: inform sender that the message is delayed.

Greylisting applies to incoming messages only.

As messages are greylisted, your hMailserver tells the sending server that the message is delayed with a '451 try again'

Re: Decimal values for spam tests

My SpamAssassin ALWAYS returns integers (rounded down)
(And subsequently all of my hMailserver scores are also integers)


There must be a setting in SpamAssassin that does that. Any ideas which one? I'd probably turn it off.
