Hello, @DOuser007

The blacklists are related to the email reputation of the IP address. The blacklist can not cause issues for your websites in any way.

Another thing to keep in mind is that there are a lot of blacklists and even if your IP address is listed in such this does not mean that you’ll have issues when sending emails. A lot of those mail blacklists are paid and big email providers will not check against their database meaning you will not have issues with your outgoing emails.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

Blacklisted by who and why?
