Why is it that my Talktalk IP address is on a Blacklist ?
I've had a few problems with email and someone suggested that my IP may be Blacklisted. I checked and it was on several sites as blacklisted ? Why is that ?
The IP was 18.104.22.168 but now I've rebooted my router it's obviously changed to something else and even that IP is on a blacklist ?

As you know the home broadband router is dynamically allocated an IP address. If that IP address has been detected as sending spam then it, and sometimes whole IP address ranges, end up on spam blacklists.
You can send TalkTalk Mail from webmail and that then uses TalkTalk server to originate and authenticate the outgoing mail.
If you send using an email client then send only using SSL/TLS encrypted connections and fully authenticated outgoing mail. Don't ever respond to spam mail. If you need help with setting up email then we can help on the email forum.
