<sidenote>

And now gmail becoming more and more popular we have a problem using
grey-listing: gmail uses server pools from at least 2 different subnets:

64.233.170
64.233.18

So you will have to whitelist these nets to not delay mail delivery for
a too long time or to cause final rejection. More net ranges might be
used by gmail. Input from your log files welcomed!
