Probably not--that has been ongoing for some time.  The maintinance laid
the groundwork for me to attempt to deal with the problem via DKIM, but
that has not been activated at this time.

The critical portion of the message is this header:
"Unauthenticated email from is not accepted"

As to why Google thinks "" == "" I have no
idea, but it seems that we are not alone in dealing with this issue:

That last message at least outlines the problem.  Trouble is we are one of
the sites struggling with inertia; we couldn't implement DKIM until the
recent upgrades, and after the upgrades I have been too busy with R14
release to roll out DKIM, etc.  Boils down to the typical human condition
I suppose: too much to do, too little time and money. :-)
