gmail admins?


Any gmail admins out there? I forward email addressed to me to a gmail
account. Overnight you started returning:

There were not temporary failures, you jumped straight to permanent
failures. Emails were about 90% to my own gmail account, a total of
about 80 over 12 hours.

Fix your damn algorithm.

And of course I have to complain publicly because you don't accept
trouble reports privately, instead sending people into useless
dead-end automated help systems.

Bill I ran into this same issue some time ago.

I had to move my mail off of Gmail for the same reason. In my case it was on a shared box with people who were not forwarding to Gmail and was causing issues for them sending to Gmail.

Gmail really needs a "this server is forwarding email to me" setting.

That's what the "pick up mail using POP" feature is for. It works a
lot better.

I've tried a kludge where I run all of the mail to be forwarded through
spamassassin, forward the stuff with squeakly clean low scores, and locally
deliver the iffy stuff to be picked up by Gmail's POP client.
