I'm setting up a Postfix server and I would like to delay the "ready" handshake when a connection opens by a few seconds.  It's an experiment to slow down spammers and to hopefully keep them from account harvesting.  Is this possible?

Dunno. It's possible in sendmail v8.13.x, using the GREETPAUSE Feature. PostFix just added limited sendmail MILTER support, so adding something like GREETPAUSE may be forthcoming.
