Subject: Re: We need an IETF BCP for GREY LISTING
On the other hand, it's not clear to me what benefit we could achieve
by doing so. That is, I'm not sure I see many instances of greylisting
implementations behaving badly -- thus, potentially benefitting from
a document that would give some guidance. I think that most of the ones
I've observed are doing a reasonable (if, perhaps, sometimes annoying
or inconvenient) job of deferring mail traffic for a sensible length
of time. Are others' logs reflecting a different picture?
No evidence here of a new or increasing problem, and I'm not convinced it's
something that requires a change or extension to the protocol in any case.
A BCP that merely documents what greylisting is, how to use it, why people like
it, some of the pitfalls, etc., might not be a bad idea though.
