Yeah, I think that it basically tries harder to avoid spam in some
cases, so it applies stricter rules.  For example, the message that
you just sent has this:

  Sender: robby.findler at gmail.com
  From: Robby Findler <robby at eecs.northwestern.edu>

so you're using gmail to send an email for your nwu address, and I'm
guessing that the problem is related to that.  It might be that nwu
has an SPF that says that such emails are not blessed, or it might be
something else.  (This is not to say that the problem is only on your
side -- it's obviously a very common setup.)
