Where are my comment notification emails?

I seem to be missing about half of my comment notification emails recently (in the past couple of days or so). Strange. I played around a little with my email script recently, but I doubt that's the problem.

*has an idea* *checks spamtrap* Hm... doesn't look like it. Bummer. I wonder what's wrong.

Edit: At the moment, I'm inclined to point my finger at the vanity (sub)domain which handles my email... I just got a support notification, 18 hours late, and the handoff is inside that domain:

Received: from mail by with spam-scanned (Exim 3.36 #5) id 1AfNOI-0004jW-00 for my LiveJournal email address; Sat, 10 Jan 2004 09:59:21 -0800
Received: from [] ( by with esmtp (Exim 3.36 #5) id 1Af6Mn-0005kp-00 for my LiveJournal email address; Fri, 09 Jan 2004 15:48:37 -0800
Received: from localhost.localdomain ( []) by (Postfix) with ESMTP id 5B62438549; Fri, 9 Jan 2004 15:48:43 -0800 (PST)

Observe that the mail server (ficus) accepted the email on Friday at 15:48 but it didn't make it through the spam scanner until Saturday at 09:59. (And only then could my email delivery script sort out where to direct it.) WTF?
