Blacklists are lists of known spammers, which contain their IP addresses, and/or their ISP (Internet Service Provider). Such information helps spam filters block all messages coming from known spammers and/or their ISPs. It is common for an ISP to a use a blacklist to determine which emails should be blocked. Different ISPs use different blacklists. Unfortunately, these blacklists also contain many legitimate email service providers. Just a few spam complaints can land an email service provider or IP address on a blacklist despite the fact that the ratio of complaints to volume of email sent is extremely low.

Blocked

A blocked email is a message that did not get delivered due to being considered spam by the subscriber’s ISP. This may be due to being on a blacklist or because the message contains content that falls within the ISP's blocked content list.
