In many corporations, blackberry services are offered through a service called BES.  This server
is a portal to send email out to a blackberry server, where every blackberry customer who uses BES
passes through.  When it passes through that server, the email appears to come from a relay
server, not the original server.  Such services as postini and Sprint Frontbidge, to name a few,
block this as it looks like spam.  

Hope that helps...
