I have created a blacklist record for my email account blacklisting an email address. When a message from the address comes it is rejected with "Recipient address rejected: Blacklisted" diagnostics in the syslog. And the sender receives a message which contains
host mail.example.com: 554 5.7.1 <email@example.com>: Recipient address rejected: Blacklisted
But it is the sender address that is blacklisted and rejected, not the recipient address. Is it a bug or an intentional feature (like a kind of political correctness: we do not want to offend the sender saying he/she is rejected and therefore say that recipient is rejected)?
