Put your domain name in and run the blacklist check.

Do you have a static IP address?

Spoiler alert: You're blacklisted.
Your server or another server from the same ISP is being used for spamming. Contact your ISP (Mobility Broadband?) and see if they can tell you if the spam is coming from your servers or not. If not your servers, then they should help you get it sorted out. If it is your servers, someone could be using your server as a spam relay. Turn off your relaying (see here There are several other articles out there on preventing spammers from using your servers. I suggest Googling around and reading up on the subject.

Another option would be to block port 25 on your LAN and this will stop spam emails from sending out. Allow only Exchange to send emails. Create a LAN to WAN rule blocking port 25 and then create another rule allowing only Exchange to send emails. You might not have been blacklisted because of spam emails, this could also be due to viruses on your LAN. Be sure to run a virus scan on all systems, also run malware and spyware scan. You can Malwarebytes which is a free tool. You can download this at Blocking port 25 would prevent viruses or spam and spyware from sending out via PCs connected to the internet.

Make sure that you have static IP Address for sending emails to internet. Make sure your ISP Subnet is not blacklisted. Enable Exchange 2007 Anti Spam features on Hub Transport  install a proper Exchange aware anti virus and anti spam solution like McAfee Group Sheild or Symantec Mail Security. Test your blacklist by and request for removal of blacklist IP Address from the blacklisted sites. After doing this excersize, you have to wait for atleast 24 hours to get removed from blacklisted sites and you will be able to send emails to and other domains
