I am interested in grey trapping as I think it would help cut down on spam without causing unwanted delays with emails. However, I don't see how you can have one without the other. Is it possible to configure spamd for grey trapping but not grey listing?

if you don't want grey/black listing, you might just want to use, for
example in sendmail, the access database (insert whatever equals in the
sendmail replacements).  trapping is of little use without greylisting -
why 'trap' an ip address when you don't care about the ip the next time
