I am facing the same issues.
In my case, the origin almost always have been blacklists with broken,
simple-minded relay tests checks, which choke on some kind of mail paths
and then conclude mail to be spam they can not process.
Another cause I've recently encountered to be blocked is some site's
having installed some content filtering/censorship systems which
automatically reject mails containing certain key words.
ATM, I am struggling with such a site, which considers all mail
originating from non-US-sites and contain the string "free" in the
sender to be junk (My provider is "freenet.de").
