What is a blacklist?

A blacklist contains banned emails sent by specific email addresses and domains. It is used alongside a whitelist, emails sent by specific email addresses that are considered trustworthy, to ban an email domain while allowing a few specific email addresses from the same email domain to be accepted.

If an email address or domain is considered harmful or dishonest, it can be blocked if an agent removes them from a blacklist and whitelists them again. Email addresses can be unblocked to allow them back into the whitelist or removed from the blacklist. Usually, email addresses that try to phish, harm, or spam are added to the blacklist.
