Can tell you the location of the default MWP 'Friend's List':-

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Firetrust\MailWasher\cache\MWP.db3

You may experiment with MWP.db3 (at your own cost) by right clicking and opening it with Notepad. Please note the MWP.db3 also contains other relevant data (and is easily corruptible.)
MWP 7 disabled from the cloud (ßeta) | Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) | The Bat! Professional (ßeta) | Windows Firewall Control (WFC) | NOD32 EAV (ßeta) | Intel® HD Graphics 3000 | Internet Connection Speed (D=50 Mb/s U=3.5 Mb/s) | .NET Framework (4.7.1)

That location is applicable to Windows 8, Vista and Windows 7.

If you're running any other OS, try the following:-

From the GUI of your MWP Inbox, navigate to Help >>----> User Files... >>----> (in the Window that opens before you,) >>----> cache >>----> MWP.db3 (if you still cannot see MWP.db3, disable hidden files at your 'Folder Options.')
MWP 7 disabled from the cloud (ßeta) | Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) | The Bat! Professional (ßeta) | Windows Firewall Control (WFC) | NOD32 EAV (ßeta) | Intel® HD Graphics 3000 | Internet Connection Speed (D=50 Mb/s U=3.5 Mb/s) | .NET Framework (4.7.1)

Ah, that's not the MWP version that's supposed to be discussed, here - what you're using is a older & unsupported version. Glad your issue is resolved. :D

The Blacklist.txt is available only in the older version that's discussed at the following link:—
MWP 7 disabled from the cloud (ßeta) | Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) | The Bat! Professional (ßeta) | Windows Firewall Control (WFC) | NOD32 EAV (ßeta) | Intel® HD Graphics 3000 | Internet Connection Speed (D=50 Mb/s U=3.5 Mb/s) | .NET Framework (4.7.1)
