Hello,

If you are using SendGrid, your emails should be going out through their SMTP directly and not your Droplet’s IP. I could suggest making sure that your website is actually using the SendGrid SMTP details.

Regarding the blacklist itself, I could suggest contacting the DigitalOcean support team directly for further assistance.

As a side note, here is an interesting read on why you may not want to run your own mail server but rather use an SMTP provider:
