If a "spam" state were to exist, what are the conditions under which it would be released for processing and delivery?

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?)
