I got an IP address - 126.96.36.199 - that is on blocked lists. Sending an email from this address is impossible as Gmail and other providers will reject it as an address that sends spam.
When I sent a complaint about this I got a “can happen” answer with the advice to use third party email providers. I beg to disagree.
I understand that DO customers sometimes send spam and that DO needs to sell addresses. But this is like a car dealer selling a car that he knows is defect. DO should take its responsibility and check the IP addresses itself and if there are problems it should take effort to clean the reputation of the address. It is much better equipped to this than its customers.
