"This message was not sent because it contained suspicious content"

I sent a 5 line email to a mate on gmail from my hotmail account.
it contained 6 words, in plain text, no links, no images.
It got sent back by the hotmail server as undeliverable.
looking at the message headers, I found (in the returned message):
"This message was not sent because it contained suspicious content"
wha?

All I can think, is that that collection of "words" looks like the goobledy goop that spammers sometimes use to try and fool anti spam measures.

yeah, that's pretty much what I assumed,
be interesting to know if anyone else has found a more comprehensive explanation
I have now managed to track down a similar (but not identical) message in MS support.
Their suggestion was wonderful: "Make the message less suspicious"
Ah! Micro$oft support ... quite literally, second to none ...

Oh that made me laugh out loud... perhaps if you talked about bombs and blowing up tube stations?  Is that less suspicious?
