Hello, I remember that spamcop or maybe it was spamhaus had gmail on their block list.  Is this still the case?  I'm setting up some RBL's on an Exchange Server and want to make sure I'm not blocking out their customers.

If you want to ensure that you don't block email then you don't use RBLs. Simple.
I do not use RBLs on any of my sites as I prefer to decide what email the server receives, not an unaccountable vigilante unknown third party.

I am not aware of the Google domains being blocked by any blacklists at the moment. That is not to say that they will not in the future - but you will have no control over that until after it happens.

Some gmail servers are currently on the sorbs blacklist (and possibly spamcop). I think spamcop was blocking for a while, but not now. I am not aware of spamhaus doing this.

I'm using spamhaus and we have experienced no blocking of gmail.
We routinely use gmail for tests.
