[Bioperl-l] X-Greylist: Delayed

The IP your mail comes from is initially greylisted (hence the 30 min  
delay which requires the host to resend) and then after it is  
whitelisted so frequent posters's originating IP is will end up and be  
cached. So it depends on if your IP is dynamic, how often you are  
emailing the list, etc.

All this was discussed at least once a while ago.

Mailing list problems should probably go to root-l at open-bio.org if you  
want specific help too.
