I have a doubt

What happens if I enable Greylist Weight Threshold?
Let me explain.
Assuming a domain has greylisting enabled in its options. If I enable Greylist Weight Threshold in the anti-spam tab will the greylist only be applied if it exceeds a certain threshold?
If I don't enable it, does it always apply?

I'm perplexed.

it says in the documentation

  • Greylist Weight Threshold - By enabling this field, an inbound email must have a total spam weight score of this value or higher in order to be greylisted. The score is established by the settings on the Spam Checks, RBLs and URIBLs tabs. (By default, this threshold is set to 30 and is disabled.)

But this means that before replying and closing the communication with the remote server you will have to do all the anti-spam checks

Technically if he just has to activate the greylist he doesn't even need to receive the message because that's enough for him
sender server ip, sender email, recipient email

Or am I wrong?
