    I am getting rate limited from gmail because twitter is sending too much email on behalf of a client??

    From what I understand n017563f646-d74be539b30a478fba45e3a58fb85ace-afiliacion===[email protected] is the sender and [email protected] is the receiver. So why is my server involved in any of this? Why is twitter sending stuff to gmail through my server?

    Maybe your client sends copies / forwards his mail to gmail-account [email protected]
