[nSLUG] nSLUG spam filter changes

Hi;

 At 11:00 local time today, we have enabled greylisting on the nSLUG
server in an attempt to reduce spam messages.

 Hopefully this will cut down on the amount of local resources used
by Bayesian filtering and have little to no impact on any list
members.

 If for any reason your mail is delayed beyond the 300second back off
period please feel free to contact an admin at greylist at nslug.ns.ca in
order to resolve the issue.

Some resources:
Greylisting white paper -

Postgrey (daemon running in line with postfix) -
http://isg.ee.ethz.ch/tools/postgrey/
nSLUG's custom init.d/default - http://nslug.ns.ca/postgrey/
(Note: the init.d was changed per Debian bug to allow for the
greylist-txt variable to properly pass)

!DSPAM:43a8481d48801874116923!
