With some mail servers, a queue may start to accumulate, when
a problem occurs.  When the problem is cleared though, the mail
server may still keep these messages in the queue, but start
processing/sending along any new messages as they arrive.

There may be a job running at a specified interval running
a special command to clear any backed up queues.

Is it possible that some certain keywords are flagged, and the
email marked as spam?

Might want to run a tcpdump to see the SMTP commands go back
and forth.
