This article will guide you on how to enable or disable Greylisting from the SmarterMail by login in as a domain administrator.
What is greylisting?
It is a method to prevent email users from Spam. It is one type of filtering that involves the strategic temporary rejection of a sender based on that sender's IP address and additional routing information.
The server which uses a greylisting strategy will take the sender's IP address and other routing information attempt to match it against a database. If there is no match, the server will issue a temporary rejection error code. greylisting is based on the conception that a legitimate server will receive the rejection and send the message again, while a spamming server is likely to write off the recipient's email address is invalid.
