    Hi,
    Just curious.
    Why are we using postgrey when there is greylisting in rspamd?
    Is there any special features that postgrey has that rspamd does not have?

    We use it for backward compatibility with amavis at the moment, might be that we remove postgrey in future and replace it with a Rspamd native function for rspamd setups.

    I guess you can activate Postgrey for 100 % on a emailaccount, when on Rspamd you can set it to greylist in policy for spam over 10 (or 1) for example.

    Looks like rspamd is the way to go.

    I am not 100% sure but I do remember reading from somewhere that rspamd monitors what is sent out and if there is a reply to the email sent out earlier, the greylist is deactivated. Which is a cool feature.

    Here is the link to the module in rspam that does it.
    https://rspamd.com/doc/modules/replies.html
    Here is my config for rspamd 1.9.4
    cat replies.conf
    expire = 5d;
    key_prefix = "rr";
    message = "Message is reply to one we originated";
    symbol = "REPLY";
    action = "no action";
    servers = "127.0.0.1";
