the problem i have with google smtp is in the reverse direction

  drop    condition     = ${if isip4{$sender_host_address}}
          message       = blocked because $sender_host_address is \
                          in  blacklist at $dnslist_domain: $dnslist_text
          !dnslists     = list.dnswl.org
          dnslists      = dialups.mail-abuse.org \
                          : rbl-plus.mail-abuse.org \
                          : qil.mail-abuse.com
          logwrite      = REJECT because $sender_host_address listed in
$dnslist_domain

i.e. i do dns blacklists proceeded by a white list.  and when goog adds
a new smtp outbound, users say folk get bounces, i have to chase them
down and then go through dnswl.org's process.  major pita and mail does
get lost.
