The value Connections Blocked is the % of connections blocked at our Essentials front door per Stack. That means this statistic includes the percentage of blocked connections for ALL customers on a particular stack (US1, US2, US3, etc.) and not only for the specific account you may be looking at. The two sources we have for block list are Proofpoint Dynamic Reputation (PDR) and Cloudmark Sender Intelligence (CSI). Proofpoint Essentials utilizes PDR & CSI for inbound email. IPs listed will block any message prior to delivery.
