  There are, but I don't remember any names.

  I run a small server, so it might not be terribly relevant, but
I use the greylistd package in debian[0]. Pretty much zero manual
configuration nowadays, at least when coupled with exim4. Just
"apt-get install greylistd", answer some questions and you're done.

  It's a bit spartan though. No built in rules for automatic white-listing
based on outgoing mail, no fancy web interface, and it uses its own flat
file format -- so it's not ideal if you want to sit around pulling off
fancy queries, but one less dependance/faultpoint -- just perfect for me.
