I have the reverse problem, more or less. When sending mail to a google
server, it doesn't want to receive it. At least, when I'm using IPv6.
In the past, it helped to force it to use IPv4 instead, but I haven't
looked recently if that still worked.

When it refuses, its error message points to some unhelpful page which
implies but does not dare to say out loud that they think I'm a spammer.
They demand DKIM or similar configurations, which I refuse to use,
because its a lot of work to configure, and it often doesn't even work
with mail forwarding.
