[LEAPSECS] speaking of timeliness

Based on the delivery of the mail through LEAPSECS during the past few
months it is my impression that the mail transfer agent is using a
form of greylisting to reduce junk. It looks like the MTA rejects the
first delivery attempt and waits until it sees a second attempt before
exploding the message to the list. Given the concerns of the
subscribers to LEAPSECS this enforced delay is curiously humorous.
