I have seen that few mails are delivered. When a mail is delivered, why i can see this mail under:

webinterface > greylisting > waiting?

it would not have to be deleted after delivery from the list

If a message gets greylisted, it is temporarily refused by eFa. Efa will not accept and store it. The sending party receives a notification that the service is temporarily unavailabe. This will trigger the sender to try again after some time, where the timespan is up to the sender's configuration alone.

That's the reason, that putting a sender on the whitelist doesn't release any stored messages, as there aren't any. Any new attempt to deliver a message will be successful, though.

Many thanks for your answer, that helps me.

When a mail successfully delivery, should not this be deleted from the waiting list? I see many Mails in the Waiting list which were delivered?

Mails in the deferrred queue are not there due to greylisting. As I said, postfix doesn't even accept mails it greylists, so they can never be on your eFa. On the other side, mails that are sent from your domain and being greylisted by their recipients mailservers, would be in that queue, because postfix hasn't been able to deliver them successfully to their destination… but those will have a sender from your domain and a recipient from the remote domain.
