Actually, they use Google's Postini, which uses SURBL.

In your Postini control panel, you can add the debian list to your
approved sender list.  This will bypass spam filters.
Your Bruce Telecom email administrator has done this for you.

Now that the debian list is whitelisted for your account, no head
beatings are necessary.

PS - Jeff or other SURBL devs, if you want the offending email headers,
etc., let me know.  It looks like it was Postini that blocked a message,
based on a SURBL listing for medlistsources<munged>.com.  Perhaps we
need to get ahold of Google re: blocking policy?
