It can take some time while GMail pushes a mail through your GrayList. The reason is that Google has several SMTP outgoing mail servers. The problem is that Google is rotating these mail servers to send even a single mail. Another complication is that Google SMTP mail servers does not have a single IP but they rotate several IPs for a single mail server. All these together does not make a good friend with graylisting systems.
Google can sometimes cause headache if you have a GrayList system implemented on your mail server.
What Graylisting does is that it records tripples: IP + sender + receiver.
When an email is sent from GMail, it is temporarily refused by our mail server (code 450 or 451)
