We've seen this before too but this week it has been different.  Every  
single host that relays email on our network has these in the queue.   
Now a couple of them do mailing lists and such so I could see it  
happening but a couple of them don't do anything high volume at all.

For some of them some mail goes through but only some of the time.  It  
seems like if we hit the right MX machine it works and other times it  
does not.

We tried going around them by sending mail over to an employee's  
personal mail server (which does nearly no volume at all) but even it  
is blocked probably 1/2 the time.

I'm not sure what is going on but given all this I can't believe it is  
just "normal".

We filled out one of those forms but just got back a response that  
said it wasn't happening but if it was we should see their "best  
practices" URL.  Only problem is we actually do everything on their  
list (including both DomainKeys and DKIM).
