[MlMt] Too many bounces?

Gmail is getting awful. I run a couple mail servers. I have root emails 
fwd’d to my gmail address. I only send a couple dozens log and notices 
emails each day. Gmail has started randomly bouncing them. I have used 
their so-called postmaster tools, registered and verified my domains, I 
have dmarc and spf setup correctly. I have reverse dns setup correctly. 
I closely monitor all mail leaving the sever. I don’t relay anything. 
There’s nothing more I can do and apparently no human point of contact 
there to do anything about it.

I’ve about had enough of gmail. It’s starting to make hotmail look 
like a better alternative. (sarcasm)
