Are you at Exchange Service Pack 2 and have Intelligent Mail Filter enabled?  There are a number of settings that need to be configured for the IMF to work correctly.

And it is enabled in both the Message Delivery as well as the Default SMTP Connector?  What limits are you using in the Gateway Blocking Configuration and Store Junk E-Mail Configuration under the IMF tab in Glocal Settings/Message Delivery?  In the "When blocking messages" what is it set to?
