If I understand you correctly, what you describe is impossible. You need
to decide whether to defer the message before the data part of the smtp
Greylisting is indeed a useful tool in the fight against spam, but as
you've noticed, it can be a nuisance too, you should look into exims
ability to selectively defer based on certain heuristics.
I think spamassassin can be very useful here too, but others on this
