If sending email to Gmail over IPv6 you absolutely require matching
forward and reverse DNS and some email IP authentication mechanism
such as SPF and/or DKIM. If you can't do this, disable IPv6 in your
mail server either in general or when sending to Gmail (could be
tricky because this affects Google Apps For Your Domain also, so you
don't necessarily know all the domains).

You will have an easier time over IPv4 as Gmail relax their SPF/DKIM
requirement, though can still avoid unwanted trashing of your email
by implementing SPF and/or DKIM.
