The greylist is great. Blocks the most spam of all the filters by far. It is basically necessary to run, but is a real pain when it blocks a legitimate email that a client needs right away. (For example, I've never posted to this forum before. Getting the email validation for my account through the greylist was a real Mad)

Would be nice to have an option to immediately bypass the greylist. Have an option in right-click context menu to - request resend of email from remote server and ignore/bypass the greyfilter for this email

Since the Greylisting filter works on the SMTP protocol level, I doubt there is any way to "release" the email to the intended recipient, since it is not delivered to the target server in the first point.

Basically greylisting tells the sending server to retry to send sometimes later. I doubt SMTP supports "requesting" the email from the senders server.
