    I'm lost, what "google" has to do with this? Is there anything I can set in our Exchange 2010 to let this email or domain go through?

  • I'm not sure what this has to do with Exchange, but globalsign has the following SPF record:

    v=spf1 a mx ptr ip4: ip4: -all

    which means if the email does not come from one of those addressed, people enforcing senderID will reject the mail.
