Routine greylist maintenance

The greylist database grows over time, because the greylist server never removes database entries. If left unattended, the greylist database will eventually run your file system out of space.

When the status file size exceeds some threshold you can simply rename or remove the file without adverse effects; Postfix automatically creates a new file. In the worst case, new mail will be delayed by an hour or so. To lessen the impact, rename or remove the file in the middle of the night at the beginning of a weekend.
