If you see "temporary greylist embargoed", then greylisting has not
been turned off with "option greylist-off"

Besides typographical errors, other possible causes include
  - whiteclnt file not writable by the UID running dccm
  - dccm too old to know about "option greylist-off"

That is true, subject to dccm rejection thresholds and so forth.

The best tests are those that are closest to real life.   That is
why it use useful to send real messages from outside domains and 
see what happens.

You could also set DCCM_LOG_AT=0 in /var/dcc/dcc_conf and look at the 
log files for legitimate mail.
