When I look at the companies/domains I have blocked (Outlook ZA tool bar: ZoneAlarm Options, Configure Preferences) I see a column "Messages". What do the numbers in this mean? I assumed that it was the number of messages from a domain that were blocked, but several have the number 1024. Others 512, 128, 64, 32, 8. Sounds like bits to me. So what conclusions can I draw from this.

What happens to a message from a domain blocked by ZA? Is there a chance that by simply highlighting the message in order to block it, that I am sending a signal back to the SPAMer that I my address is a legitimate email address? When I block a domain, I do not want to ever see anything from that domain. Is this possible?
