Are you using a "fake" domain? E.g. 'HELO yourbox' doesn't match your ISP's,
or the like. Reverse DNS is also something often used as a criterion. They
may use that when filtering, it's very common (which IMHO is kinda silly,
they should instead use a Bayesian filter and let the user dump their spam
into a SPAM folder, then use that periodically for training the filter).
You may even be unfortunate as to being part of a blacklisted IP block by one
of the anti spam houses whose databases are often used for filtering. It's
hard to say what exactly they do.
