My virign email spam filter is set to tag spam and deliver to the inbox.
This does work and the spam is tagged.
I have no blacklists.
If I send an email to my virgin email from another email -firstname.lastname@example.org I get the following message
(virgin should not be blocking my own test email but should allow it through and mark it spam- but I point out there is no spam content, just that the mail.com email ip address has a spamhause listing.
This means if it had been an important email to me, virgin have blocked it, if that is the case they are censoring my received virgin email which is most unusual??)

I have tested 3 different virgin email addresses, 2 are mine and one my wife's and all are blocked if sent from mail.com.
Yet I get lots of spam, but why does my own genuine emails get blocked when spammers can deliver to virgin email no problem.
It is tagging as spam-X-Spam-Flag: YES but blocking delivery??
My own virgin IP address is on on a block list but do not think that is the issue-
What is the PBL?
The Policy Blocklist (PBL) is a list of IP space that should not be sending email direct to MX: often these are IP ranges assigned by ISPs to broadband or dial-up customers, but the PBL does include other types of IP space. Any IP space that should not be sending email directly to the Internet should be listed in PBL.
PBL listings do not prevent the sending of email unless the user’s email program is not authenticating correctly when connecting to their ISP or company’s mail server. Possible causes for this happening suddenly: changing email programs or changing settings on the existing one, forgetting to turn “SMTP Authentication” on, or switching “SMTP Authentication” off.
