There still seems to be a delay to the lists. And FWIW, if you were 
monitoring the lists at all the past _week_ or so you would have noticed 
that there was a delay on the lists. I only implemented greylisting on 
quantum yesterday. Obviously, this shows that the problem lies elsewhere.

I'll be investigating this further. Mailman receives messages nearly 
right away and posts them to pipermail, but it seems that _outgoing_ 
mail from mailman is delayed by quite a bit. Again, this would have had 
nothing to do with greylisting installed on our server.

Digging deeper...
