set argument panel. Don't known what you mean by a `point' (that would be
invisible, but perhaps pch=20 or pch="."?

set argument gap.

In ... set bty="n", and in your panel function include box(col="grey80").


data(iris[, 1:4])
pairs(iris[, 1:4]), gap=0,
      panel=function(x,y, ...) {box(col="grey80"); points(x, y, pch=20)},
      bty="n", diag.panel= function(x,y, ...) box(col="grey80"))
