An alternative which does this is to replace their mailbox with
a read-only mbox or maildir containing a single mail with the
'you have been blocked' message you want. Obviously you would
need to allow them to log in again, but they would only receive
the message you choose.

Just make sure that new mail doesn't go into it.
