Filtered at what level?  If you want to prevent Greylist from delaying
mail from your local network, whitelist the IP addresses instead.  Much
harder to forge (impossible if you've got your routers set up to prevent
spoofing at your borders).

As for spamassasin, never used it, my custom filter (in use at work, I'm
greylisting at home without rule-based filtering) has a simple check to
see if the email ever went outside our local network, and if it didn't,
whitelists it.  I'm sure a similar rule can be created for spamassasin,
though without knowing spamassasin, I couldn't write it myself.
