I strip any existing inbound sigs.  The GMail senders were using GMail
web interface.

This looks more and more like a lazy DNS issue, as the MX for GMail
has flip-flopped over the past ~24 hours.  I honestly think that GMail
rotated in a wrong server...the only other possibility is that
powerdns cached a record beyond it's TTL.
