Arnt is correct that one of the actions that might be taken before responding to
the end of DATA is a delivery, possibly thereby involving an SMTP Sender

But as Tony notes, the specific nature of the action after <CRLF>.<CRLF>
wasn't my question. My question was solely about SMTP Receiver delay in making the response... for whatever reason -- and note that spam filtering was actually the trigger condition for the question, not message relaying. But again, the details weren't part of the question.
