Alternatively referred to as a blackhole list, a blacklist is a record of bad e-mail addresses or Internet service providers that send spam e-mail a user or company. Blacklists are set up to help prevent unwanted messages from entering a user's inbox.


To get removed from a blacklist, contact the administrator responsible for its maintenance.
