I was thinking of checking the message to see if it were possible
spam. You might have some cases where your processing can not do an
immediate SPAM/HAM determination but have some delay in making that
decision. Thus the spam state while the message is delayed while the
extended check is being done.
Offline or deferred processing for potential threats or detecting policy
violations is pretty common. But the keyword "spam" is a judgment, not a
reason. How about verbs like "study", "analyze", or even "filter"?
("Weigh" and "adjudge" are arguable more accurate, except no one would
have idea what they mean. Which is heavier, ham or spam?)
