Greylisting is a method of defending e-mail users against spam.

A mail transfer agent (MTA) using greylisting may “temporarily reject” any email from a sender it does not recognize.

If the mail is legitimate, the originating server will try again after a delay, and if sufficient time has elapsed, the email will be accepted.
