so what "sensitive content" tripped the filter? was it legitimate (i.e. one of

I see these all the time...
Typically, someone files a spam complaint. When our ticketing
system sends them back an acknowledgement, this filter bounces the
'spam' (subject is preserved, with a ticket number appended.)
Thusly, we cannot easily contact someone about their complaint
because of their oh-so-good spam filters (that only seem to work AFTER
they received the spam.)
Genius in action.
