Postgrey not whitelisting emails from this board.

Posted September 17, 2014 6.8k views

Ok I have had postgrey setup and working for some time. This boards messages keep getting greylisted. After 900 seconds they do end up coming in but I was trying to just go ahead and whitelist them.

Sep 17 11:26:36 ddc1 postgrey[1692]: action=greylist, reason=new,, client_address

When they show up headers are
X-Greylist: delayed 903 seconds by postgrey-1.34 at

I added to my whitelist_clients

But still everything gets delayed. Well the last one got past since it was triplet and AWL.

Sep 17 14:44:57 ddc1 postgrey[1692]: action=pass, reason=client AWL,

Anything in my whitelist show up like.

Sep 17 12:28:05 ddc1 postgrey[1692]: action=pass, reason=client whitelist,

So I know the file is being read.

Also tired moving my custom whitelist to whitelist_clients.local. Believe that is the actual file I should be using. It shouldn’t get erased if postgrey has an update.

What am i doing wrong. Yea I restarted postgrey and postfix.
