[Greylist-users] TEMPFAIL sometimes?

I've got the same effect and make same test's with a modem-connection.

Some times the messages is delivered, sometimes i got a tempfail.

I write a test script like:

 telnet .... 25
   hello ...
   mail from ..
   rcpt to ..
   subject: test
    (sleep 90)

The effect is also here, sometimes delivery other times tempfail.

The debug output from the milter shows no errors, but the EOM-CALLBACK
lines where not printed in the log-file for this tempfail Mails

There is also no increment in the database entry.

Can somebody help, is it a timeout in sendmail ? 

Best Regards
