Email address from NOT forwarding specific email(s)!?

Was transferring a domain today. It was set up to have as the admin contact an email box at that luckily kept the messages. For some reason, the notification of unlocked emails, authorization codes, and all emails after the transfer was initiated were forwarded from the sonic inbox, but NOT the repeat emails requesting a transfer initiation. This was so bizarre I didn't even log-in to check on this until the last step as I had such confidence in sonic of all the other services involved.

Transferring from Godaddy (they have messed with transfer requests in the past, so I was looking for that), to Namesilo (their like the sonic of domain name registrars, everyone should use them), with the admin contact on a non-private (public, since it's .us and privacy is not allowed) whois listing as a email address, forwarding to a hotmail account.

All channels were working surrounding these emails and everything fired perfectly as intended to get around DNS/NS/Godaddy etc. problems by setting things up this way based on past experience and obvious best practices for example not using your admin contact as the email address you are attempting to transfer a domain with attached to that domain...

How/Why did this happen? Do I have to change what I thought was a pretty bullet proof system again? I've grabbed the header of these emails and I don't see a reason they weren't forwarded, here it is:

Would a spam score of 1.1 meet a rule not to forward, but not to fire other actions? That's my best guess...
But, I can't find this in the members panel for the master user of that account.

No, it's a spam score of negative 1.1, against a score of positive 5.0 required for the system to flag it as spam.

Must be something else. How are you forwarding? Do you know the receiving site isn't rejecting it? Forwarded messages are often suspect.
