Out of curiousity, how many times are you going to complain about this?
With any spam blocking mechanism there will occasionally be problems.
We get a vast amount of spam and 99.9999999% of the time the spam
blocker does a good job blocking it.
Your message was blocked because you sent a large binary encoded
attachment to the list which apparently had one or two phrases in it
that marked things as spam.
