Hi

Would be happy to hear if anyone is using both Worldpay and greylisting without any issues - it seems that worldpay is not sufficiently set up to deal with this.

This seems ridiculous, and I hope I'm proved wrong.

thanks in advance.

From Wikipedia:


Greylisting (sometimes spelled graylisting) is a method of defending electronic mail users against e-mail spam. A mail transfer agent which uses greylisting will "temporarily reject" any email from a sender it does not recognize. If the mail is legitimate, the originating server will try again to send it later, at which time the destination will accept it. If the mail is from a spammer, it will probably not be retried, and spam sources which re-transmit later are more likely to be listed in DNSBLs and distributed signature systems such as Vipul's Razor.

I've been greylisting for 6-9 months now.

So, you aren't getting an email from Worldpay when you charge a card or something? Have you tried increasing the time in which your server will accept a retry from Worldpay?

I haven't gone over to it yet; but I've been informed that they don't support resending, which is ridiculous, and i think probably wrong, but i'd rather have seen if anyone has implemented it without issues.

If I were you I'd increase that time setting.

i think we're at slightly crossed messages here. tech support at worldpay has stated that they don't support resending at all, which would make the time frames irrelevant.

If what tech support says is true, the time frame is irrelevant, if it's not true, it is relevant.

why not save yourself hassle and just use an email address specially for worldpay emails? i use a domain that's not public and never get any spam on it
