Having worked at a decent sized, respectable ISP with 100,000+ customers
sending email via Iron Ports (email scanners), even they would get put
on a blacklist on a monthly basis. Hell it wouldn't surprise me if
Gmail's SMTP servers got put on a black list at some point.
There's seemingly hundreds of blacklists and whilst some play nice,
others are very paranoid.
Usually the good email servers will detect your on a blacklist then rate
limit the number of emails it'll accept from you. If you keep pissing it
off, by sending emails to non-existant addresses (something they REALLY
hate), sending emails that are too big, or simply sending too many
emails or emails with too many recipients, then it'll tighten the
restrictions. Over time if your good then those restrictions will be
released and eventually you'll be able to send at normal rates.

Once a domain or ip address was black listed, it was quite a process to
get it unlisted again, and even then as soon as mail came from that
domain, it got blacklisted again. Supposedly there is some certification
process that official smtp relays need to go through so as to prove or
certify that they won't allow spam to be sent through them, and take
steps to remove offenders from using their relay. However, this is all
guessing, and in the end we just gave up and used our ISP's official
