I don't know what it means for a message to be in a "spam" state.
A message in a "hold for moderation" state means it's stuck in a queue until a moderator does something with it.
A message in a "quarantine" state means it's quarantined, inaccessible, until an operator brings it out or destroys it.
A message in a "timed" state means it's held in a queue until a certain release time arrives.
All of these are states that cause processing delays, but ultimately from which the message will be released.
If a "spam" state were to exist, what are the conditions under which it would be released for processing and delivery?
