"Stuffed Up"?  Does this mean "not delivered"?  If so, it's easy for 
a mail admin to see whether a message is continuously hitting the 
greylisting block mechanism.  In nearly two years of running 
greylisting I've not had a problem with failed deliveries so far 
and some of my normal correspondents do use rotating mail servers 
for their outgoing mail.  

However, if "stuffed up" simply means "delayed" then yes ALL mail 
gets delayed ( unless added to a whitelist ), some more than others 
depending on the mail server's retry cycle.
