If I have the other milters start on the eom callback, wouldn't they
have to accept the entire message (including body) before they can be

The milters I am trying to run do some checking on the mail_from and
rcpt_to headers, in order to reject the mail before it comes in.
Since this checking can be heavy (onto the machine's load) I want to
avoid doing it if greylisting reports a tempfail.

In thi case, shouldn't I do my milters at most in the eoh callback ?

With regards,
