Looking for a service to remove a "bad" domain reputation on google.

My client's email is constantly blocked from @GMail.com. Their domain has a "bad" reputation on google's postmaster tools.

I am looking for a service that can help fix this problem. I found one company called "www.rackaid.com", but they only work with Linux servers, and my client's email is on Office365 (Exchange).

I have tried to help, but I am giving up, as I am not expert enough in this.

Can you recommend a service that can solve this problem?

Thank you.

did you checked if SPF / dkim is not set at O365 side and hence gmail has blocked mails from that domain ?

In that case 1st set proper SPF and DKIM record and check if that allows gmail to accept messages?

Else log a call with Microsoft and they could help you to resolve if issue is related to SPF / DKIM

If domain itself is blacklisted, then majority of email recipients should block incoming emails from that domain, in that case you need to take domain registrar help to remove domain from blacklist

This could be down to 3rd party spam tools, i would suggest a check from MX toolbox to review the domain. This will tell you the lists that the domain is present on, follow these to have them removed. I would also look for the root cause of the Bad reputation (else it will just be blocked again) from 365 its self, also ensure that your DNS records (SPF/DMARC/DKIM) are all setup right preventing others from sending as your clients domain and reducing the risk of a bad reputation again.

Thank you for your comments.
At this point I am really not looking for advice on how to solve the problem. I am looking to hire someone who has seen this before and can solve it for me.

I have already setup DKIM and SPF. The domain is not on any blacklists according to mxtoolbox (i had check many times). It is only a problem with gmail, which gives the domain a "bad" reputation.

I give up! I just want to pay someone WHO IS AN EXPERT to solve this for me.

Thank you.

Mahesh: I can't meet right now. It will have to wait until Sunday - or whenever you return to work. How do I find out your qualifications in this matter ("BAD" domain reputation and Office365)? How do I find out the cost of this session?

Thank you.

Lev,
    Does your client use the 365 domain for sending significant amounts of email that could contribute to the overall score/reputation by Gmail? If you could provide as much information as possible this could help support getting to the bottom of this.  It maybe that resolving this issue is not a technical issue but an educational one teaching either the senders how to complete marketing OR implement a 3rd party process that protects your primary domain from these reputation issues.
