How to fix Paypal Delivery Issues with Google Groups

So I recently discovered (the hard way) that if you set up a group on Google Apps to receive and distribute emails from Paypal (like if you want to have sales@yourdomain.com for instance), this will not work.  In fact, the email never gets delivered to the destination and just disappears into the ether.  After a call with Paypal and a post on a Google Apps support forum, I’ve set up DKIM and it worked.

This, given that Google and Paypal compete, is super-shady.  Why didn’t it get delivered into my spam mailbox at least?  Google, very disappointed in you.
