E: Package ‘milter-greylist’ has no installation candidate

Debian 12 dropped the milter-greylist package for some reason. I checked with Debian community a few months ago due to the same issue but got no definitive response why it was dropped from bookworm apart that it was indeed dropped. It doesn’t seem likely it will return to default Bookworm repos, maybe as a backport. Apparently it’s still present in Ubuntu and RHEL distros

As a workaround, you can manually set mail rate limiting in postfix config but iirc it’s server-wide

After careful consideration, I have decided to implement a mixed distro. I have added the bullseye repository to the sources.list. The package has been installed and is functioning correctly. This swift solution appears to be the best course of action
