I've gotten buried by 80 bounce messages, thanks to gmail's new policy [that was, 
apparently, put into effect yesterday].  The bounces say:

<.... at gmail.com>: host alt1.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com[] said:
    421-4.7.0 This message does not have authentication information or fails to
    pass 421-4.7.0 authentication checks. To best protect our users from spam,
    the 421-4.7.0 message has been blocked. Please visit 421-4.7.0

421- 4.7.0 information. 128-v6si11952705iti.109 - gsmtp (in reply to end of
DATA command)

I looked at their 'answer' and mostly found it to be unhelpful.  i certainly can't get 
any server anywhere to change their their system configuration, nor can I mess 
with mailman [all suggestions about python-esque tweaks to mailman presume 
that you have access to the server, which I don't].   Is there something I can do 
[just as a list owner] to deal with this mess?
