writing to the HOLD queue is the normal way messages are queued from
Postfix to MailScanner if not using the milter method.

If there is nothing in the mail_log at all for the missing messages,
they are not getting to Postfix in the first place.

As Alex suggests in another reply, they are probably sending from
multiple servers and this one gets through, but others are blocked by
some firewall rule.
