Using my own greylist implementation , I ran two tests over 565,012
tuples . The first one used the full [IP,sender,recipient] tuple using a
1s embargo timeout (otherwise, using realistic values and timings such a
test would take a few days):
Start: Thu Nov 29 17:08:21 2007
End: Thu Nov 29 17:10:59 2007
Running time: 2m 38s
Rerunning to ignore the IP address, but otherwise unchanged from the
Start: Thu Nov 29 17:16:21 2007
End: Thu Nov 29 17:19:23 2007
Running time: 3m 2s
A few more, so it appears that you might be able to skip the IP address.
