[Greylist-users] restrictions order

I'm currently seeing a lot of log entries that are like this:
Mar 7 12:36:19 marvin postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from
<Kailash at oneofourdomains.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown
in virtual alias table; from=<> to=<Kailash at oneofourdomains.com>
...but really, that user doesn't exist on our server, so I'd expect them
to immediately get to this:
Mar 7 12:36:23 marvin postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from
<Sanna at oneofourdomains.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in
virtual alias table; from=<rodgers at ssfta.com>
to=<Sanna at oneofourdomains.com> proto=ESMTP
(ignore the fact that the person trying to spam us is using
'thisismyserver.com'; that's not something I typed, it's actually what
they are using)
Basically, I don't know why some attempts get the first result and some
attempts get the second, when both are unknown users for the domain.
Ideally, I'd like all unknown users to get the second result
immediately...there's no sense keeping the mail around for 300 seconds
if the user is unknown.
Here are the recipient restrictions I have in place right now. Should
the order of these be changed to make the above happen? Or am I missing
something else important?
Thanks in advance for your help!
