You cannot have IP address for MX records.
You will need to create a new host, type A, of "mail" and then enter your IP address.
Then in the MX record field, enter mail.example.com (where example.com is your domain) as the host.

Did you actually create an A record of mx.example.com ?
DO not rely on the wild card, as that can cause problems. You should have a specific host name in your domain to match.

As for the blacklisting, if your ISP is on the blacklist not a lot you can do about it other than hassle the ISP - which is what the blacklisters want. Their logic is that if the innocent victims of the blacklisting complain the ISP will kick off the spammer.

I am objecting to the closure request, because that is what I said to do.
Create the host, then set the new host as the MX record.
