- In some cases, MXToolBox Blacklists checker might report that the domain or its IP address are blacklisted.
The domain/mailbox is blacklisted on the mail server, where emails are being sent. This might occur due to spam activity on a Plesk server.
Note: If you are a domain owner, contact your hosting provider for further assistance.
As a temporary workaround, contact a system administrator of the remote server, that hosts a recipient's mailbox, to add the affected domain to whitelist.
To track down spam sources on a Plesk for Linux server, refer to an appropriate KB article:
Note: This administrative task can be done by Plesk Professional Services team on your behalf. For more information, contact Plesk Professional Services team.
