(I think I may have sent my original message to dcc-admin instead of dcc
by mistake).

I'm seeing log entries like:

rejection message: mail i0HHtDCC029150 from 207.235.6.29 temporary greylist embargoed
result: temporary greylist embargo #1

Note the lack of greylist checksums and the whiteclnt OK message.

I'm pretty sure this is being cause by the case where a message has
multiple recipents, some whom's whitelist would allow the message and
some whom's lack of whitelisting would cause the message to be
embargoed.  DCC can't selectivly embargo per recipient the message is
embargoed despite the whitelist entry.  Some how this leads to the odd
log entries and I'm guessing that's a bug.  Also the messages *are not*
being retried by the remote server and I haven't been able to determine
if that's their problem or DCCs (but the list is coming through
sendmail, so it's pretty odd that there have been 0 retries).

Beyond the above issues, this is a problem because it means people on
mailing lists with more than one local recipent can't whitelist a list
if it would otherwise be greyed.  Beyond an option to make the whitelist
apply to all recipents in this case, I'm not sure how it can be worked
around.

Users are getting cranky, so any thoughts would be appreciated.
