An Address block is an entry in the clients keys.dat file. It looks like this:

[Bitmessage address in format BM-...]
label = Name of Address shown in client
enabled = true/false
decoy = true/false
privsigningkey = Hash to sign message
privencryptionkey = Hash to encrypt message
lastpubkeysendtime = Unix timestamp of last key broadcast
noncetrialsperbyte = Integer showing difficulty
payloadlengthextrabytes = Integer showing extra bytes required

some values may not be present, if the address was generated with earlier versions of the client.
