    One of the guys I had my hosting with wasnt set up correctly, the server was an open relay and there were a few other problems.

    Within a day my accounts where hacked and used for mass mailing phishing and scam emails.

    We sorted this out and moved to a new server.

    The domains are blacklisted. on 11 lists out of 110.

    Now does this means I would be spam box (or not even delivered) every time to all address's?

    Does this mean its just the domains or domains AND IP of server? Would I need to switch host again?

    I believe the domains are blacklisted now no matter who is hosting it.

    Yes I understand the actual names are useless now. But what about the IPs of the server?

    I believe it would be the domains only because IPs are often shared between a number of different hosting accounts. If they blacklisted the IP it would render all domains for all people on that IP in the present and future to be spam, instead of just the spammer.

    It doesn't make sense to blacklist person A, B, and C when only person A is a spammer, after all.

    there's nothing we can do in this case. :( I think you should find a new domain and change your hosting's ip. (maybe domain + ip are blacklisted)

    Your domains kinda useless now bro :( Getting new domains only help. Though your loss is immense.
