On postfix IRC channel they tell me "postscreen" is a newer approach to
reduce spam and does the same as "postgrey" plus more:

zilirc | btw don't mix postgrey with postscreen, they sort-of do the same
thing
zilirc | I strongly encourage people to use postscreen because it has more
features
lunaphyte | indeed, traditional greylisting software is not really the way
to go, these days. use postscreen

I should add that `postscreen` is included in the `postfix` package while
`postgrey` is in a separate package.

Another thing to add: postgrey (greylisting) is making the mail queue grow
and slowing down delivery

The spammer is not subscribed, the list is moderated and still it comes

Markus: list being moderated and mails from non-subscribed still coming
through sounds like a bug worth a separate ticket, please file one under
the SysAdmin/Mailman category
