Is service based solely on IP address or included with email

I took a previous SPAM entry from our board, then resubmitted that email and it was approved.

I then realized the service here likely heavily depends on IP address.

Please advise if this is true. The email that was used was gracepowers4910979+o22dv@gmail.com which is easily found out to be SPAM with a quick Google search.

Hello,

the service has several anti-spam tests, not only Email&IP test. I think even you have use "spammy" email other anti-spam tests passed successfully, so that's why your dummy submission approved.

To check the service by yourself please use email 'stop_email@example.com' or one of the emails from our blacklists database with spam rate more then 7, please look here,

Thank you for the question. Please let me know if you have other questions.
