This isn't really much of a sysadmin question... rather a Google customer service question. – Robert Novak Feb 16 '11 at 23:28

gmail has strict e-mail policies and they do indeed reject a lot of e-mail before it even enters the system.

Especially if we are talking bulk e-mail such as newsletters and such. Google has a lot of advice listed here:

Also they most likely (like most other large e-mail providers) have some internal rules that are not public, which can cause e-mail to be rejected.

thanks you very much, but in this link only says about spam emails and not emails that not even enters to system.please can you give me reference for that? – Yosef Feb 16 '11 at 23:04
To get to know the reason for the e-mails being rejected by Google you will have to investigate the log files on the sending MTA. If you do not have access to these you should ask your host to look in the log files for you. – Frands Hansen Feb 16 '11 at 23:29
