milter-sender does not have a "pre-greeting traffic" message. That 
message comes from sendmail 8.13 when using the FEATURE(`greet_pause').

The sendmail FEATURE(`greet_pause') will reject a connection that sends 
any commands to the mail server before sendmail sends the 220 welcome 
message. This disrupts some spamware that pipelines the SMTP output and 
ignore reading SMTP responses from the MX.
