Well, I've tried postgrey with postfix. 
(postfix version 2.3.3 with postgrey version 1.2.7)

The reports on the websites look promising, but the only thing happening
with my system is throttling...

I've tried some things....

This is getting anoying sometimes. It simply does not work, and I do not
understand why. The postgrey website does not have a installationguide, so
I followed the guide about greylisting in general on the postfix website.

I've tried to find on the Internet simmular problems.
Uggh, sometimes I do not like opensource. The only thing I could do is to
remove this greylisting thing again. And please don't start saying I did
something wrong.
