Blocked correspondence vs Safety tab - what's the difference?

2. Safety tab
Safety tab feature, on the other hand, blocks the outgoing mail. Add the domains of the companies you don't want to contact ever.
Domains included in the Safety tab won't be marked as BLACKLISTED right after you'll add them. However, if you accidentally upload some emails under those domains as prospects in any of your campaigns, Woodpecker will assign the status BLACKLISTED to them.
How to add domains to the Safety tab?
- Go to Settings → COMPANY SETTINGS → Safety.
- Click 'Add domain'.
- Type the domains which you want to blacklist and click 'ADD'.
