I’ll bite.

So it turns out Davanum sent all those announce emails all within a couple mins if not seconds. I’m betting Outlook.com <http://outlook.com/> saw the  flood of email and on the MTA level make it as SPAM. IIRC you can do something just like that in Exim+SpamAssassin[1] so it’s not a stretch to think that Outlook.com’s MTAs could do the same.
