Almost. There is a modified version of Exim that has a "plug-in"
architecture. With that, you can add/change things like greylisting without
recompiling exim. (Of course, you might have to recompile Exim so you have
the modified version with plug in support)
There is also a way to use exim's built in perl interpreter to do
greylisting. However, while the perl interpreter is a part of standard exim,
it is a compile time option and most precompiled versions don't seem to
include it. In that case you would have to compile Exim to add the perl
Other than that, you have to compile exim. However, there are some advantages
to doing that. Exim usually runs out by the inetd, so startup time matters.
The "C" version of greylisting is very fast and efficent at start up and run
Email me directly, off the list, about what settings and compile options you
want, and perhaps I'll build one for you and put some precompiled ones up on
