Could it be that MailScanner chokes over the header ? When checking the 
messages i noticed that every problem message had a mdnsbl lookup deferred 
message in the qf file.  I have removed from my (the website of blackholes seems dead anyways) will see what 
happens. This is a qf file of a problem message :
