The company you are sending your e-mail to is using Google Apps to host their e-mail services (check dig -t MX somecompany.com).
Which means you actually are sending your e-mail to Google.
That e-mail info@somecompany.com is a group alias.
But Google rejected your e-mail because it was classified as spam.

How to avoid this?
That depends on how and what kind of mails you send.
Correct SPF records can help, DKIM can help, a working unsubscribe link can help, ...

I just sent a simple "Hi, how are you..." email, with one html hyperlink and nothing more, noone in cc noone in bcc. It was not plaintext, but html email. –  Danijel Oct 30 '12 at 10:24
    
We don't know what Google classifies as spam and what not. Best you can do is follow support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=81126 –  faker Oct 30 '12 at 10:35
    
I have no idea. I need to contat Google to check if my company is on some kind of a blacklist (we've been hacked lately). –  Danijel Oct 31 '12 at 12:51
