Support for bypassing the greylist for authenticated users is enabled by
default, there is no option to turn it off.  If it's not working, it's
probably because your sendmail isn't exporting the {auth_authen} and

{auth_authen} is necessary.

If your sendmail doesn't have them enabled by default, you may want to look
into adding:


to your sendmail.mc.
