I don't want to greylist legitimate senders.  Ideally, Sun should get
themselves off of blacklists if they expect mail to flow efficiently to
everyone (we're very conservative compared to others.)  Their
narcissistic process of making customers manually whitelist their
servers is wasting more resources than whatever resources would be spent
by Sun retrying on 4xx.

Whitelisting all confirmed reverse-addresses matching .sun.com is still
too manual.  But, it is better than whitelisting their individual IP

DNSWL is a good idea too, which I've been planning to implement in gross
for some time.  But I still would like Sun to fix their issues.
