Hello there,

Have you tried sending any emails from the droplet or you’ve checked an online RBL database? Sharing more details on this matter will be useful.

I can recommend using a third-party mail provider like Sendgird if you’re planning to run a newsletter.

Hope that this helps!

Hi @gafouri,

How did you notice that your IP is being blacklisted?

Additionally, if it’s being blacklisted on the know blacklists, if I’m not mistaken, you can request a de-list from them. Most of them will de-list the IP right away, there could be a couple that have some requirements but that should be fine since it’s a new droplet that you have created.
