What is greylisting?

Greylisting is a new popular feature for spam fighting, similar to whitelisting and blacklisting. Each time a mailbox receives an email from an unknown contact (IP) that mail is rejected with a “try again later” message. This means that all mail gets delayed at least until the sender tries again. This is where spam messages fail because they are not RFC-compliant and will not be resent later.
