5.7.1 Rejected The mail server that your ISP uses has been
identified in the sorbs blacklist and has therefore been rejected. Please
visit dnsbl.sorbs.net for further info. (in reply to MAIL FROM command)


Is this spam or has the email I sent not been delivered?

it has not been delivered. the server at the recieving end does not like your email address (or the part after the "@" sign anyway) and has stopped the message

OK. So what is the answer to SORBS blocking emails? Is that it? Does that mean that the email function on my computer is now completely useless and I have to revert to reliable systems, such as telephone and Royal Mail?

Assuming the returned item is something you did send,
it usually means that you have mis copied/typed the address.
Now some E-mail address books [including the one I use - Thunderbird] have a habit of adding prefixes and enders to an address
It may be a << or a ; something easily missed.
So resurrect the item from your sent folder and carefully check the address is absolutely as it should be.
Of course if you did not send it - dump it unopened PDQ
