I trust dccd is only running for greylisting, because I don't recall
assigning a DCC server-ID for n1ety.com.

Does the cron log say that cron-dccd was started at 02:15?

What happens when you run /var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd as root?
Does it run `dbclean -Gon`?
If not, is GREY_ENABLE=on in /var/dcc/dcc ?

`/var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd -x` will show all that the script does.
