Blacklisting spam senders?

How long does it take for a blacklisters email address to actually become blacklisted?

Been getting the usual spam telling me I've won this, won that, have a new smartphone awaiting despatch, and also info not wanted from a well known car recovery breakdown company. Despite clicking on blacklist sender on the dropdown list, some are still getting through.

So how long does it take for the blacklist to take affect?

The blacklist function in Virgin Media Mail does not stop blacklisted mail from arriving it just moves it to the Spam Folder.

That's where I'm finding it in the first place. But the blacklist tab say to stop receiving it. Must be another way somehow?

Can you point to where this reference is made so it can be corrected.

On the dropdown list. When clicking on blacklist sender it says to click on it and no more emails will be received from that sender. But they still are.....
