check here if your mail server is being blocked by google, this happen if one of the emails send spams.

usually it takes 2 days for the IP to be remived from the blacklist ...

if your mail server ip is not in the black list, then we will move to something else.

If you are being blocked by Google for spam, you will need to make sure you are not sending out spam (scan all of your systems for bots) and that your SPF records are in place and correct.

If they go to delist you and your domain is not clean and ready, they will drop the request and future requests will be delayed.

I feel this is related to some IPV6 configuration. The message unreachable does not show this is blocked by google.

I specified inet_protocols = ipv4 in postfix configuration and everything started working now.
