How to remove an IP address from email blacklists

Once I had to remove from the blacklists IP addresses of different dedicated servers located in data centers, since some mail services did not receive emails from them, due to the fact that the previous tenant did not use the IP address honestly or had viruses, spammed, and the current one got locks.

First of all, I recommend setting up SPF, DKIM, DMARC.
And also check for blocking for example with these services:
multirbl.valli.org
https://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx
https://www.spamhaus.org/lookup/
https://2ip.ru/spam/

Further, I will describe how I contacted mail services and how quickly they unblocked (the IP addresses I requested to unblock, did not send spam for many years, but sent the previous owner of the IP address).

MSN (@hotmail.com, @live.com, @msn.com, @live.ru, @outlook.com)
Unblocked, but the letters began to arrive in the spam folder, the support responded that this behavior is based on users voting on spam, if the spam will not arrive for some time, the letters will no longer fall into the spam folder.
