    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to establishing an acceptability model to determine the acceptability of a communication originating from a specified location and to evaluating the acceptability of a received communication. In one scenario, a computer system accesses a communication history for an electronic device, at least one similar user's communication history and similar locations based on geographic topology data, where the communication history includes at least one previous communication between the electronic device and a computer system. The computer system accesses an updateable listing of locations based on the geographic topology data from which communications may be received from the electronic device. The computer system then generates an acceptability model configured to provide a reachability score that indicates the acceptability of subsequent communications from the electronic device based on the communication history, the similar user's communication history and the geographic topology data.
