What is the Email Blacklist?

The blacklist is a database of senders who have been reported by receivers as senders of spam. Email addresses from this list are believed to distribute spammy emails, so they are either blocked or flagged as spam in the recipient's folder.

If you want to check if your email or domain address is blacklisted, you can use this free email blacklist checker. Alternatively, you can use SenderScore Lookup.
