Why do people always complain about deliverability to Gmail from self-hosted servers when actually Gmail has little problem with self-hosted servers. It is Outlook that outright rejects / junks 99% percent of emails from an address not in their whitelist.

And for my self-hosted server I had to make special rules to route all mail targeting Outlook through Mailgun, or otherwise none of them will actually reach the recipient. On the other hand, sending to Gmail seems to be totally fine, and I am not even on an expensive machine with my own /24 subnet -- just a VPS from Hetzner.
