    I am new to the world of sending bulk emails, and I keep seeing people talk about the risk of "getting your IP address" banned.

    But there are (often) 2 IP addresses involved right?

    1) The IP address where you send from, which shows up in mail headers at start of line "Received: from", and
    2) The IP address of the actual SMTP server you are using to send the mail

    So when people talk about "getting IP address banned" which of these two are they talking about?

    The IP address the mail is being sent from.

    With a typical bulk email set up, it will only use one IP address at a time and that one IP shows up as the "received from" IP address in the header.

    Even if you have 1000's of IPs that you are mailing with. The above is still the case.

    Thanks very much. So how does this relate to spam blacklists? Is it again the "received from" IP address that is on spam blacklists?

    Yes, it is blacklisted base on your mail header
