Name        : greylistd
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 0.8.7
Release     : 10.fc9
URL         : []
Summary     : Greylisting daemon
Description :
Greylisting is a simple but highly effective means to weed out
messages that are being delivered via spamware/ratware tools.  The
idea is to establish whether a prior relationship exists between the
sender and the receiver of a message.  Most of the time it does, and
the delivery proceeds normally.

On the other hand, if no prior relationship exists, the delivery is
temporarily rejected.  Legitimate MTAs will treat this response
accordingly, and retry the delivery in a while.  In contrast, ratware
will usually fail to retry the delivery in a normal fashion.

ChangeLog:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update greylistd' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.

All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.  More details on the
