All blacklists are not created equally. There is a lot of small blacklists that don’t really have a lot of weight.
There are real-time blacklists meaning your IP can actually pop up in and out of a blacklist and don’t necessarily stay on it.
There are major blacklists, for example, Spamhaus, that is notoriously difficult to get off of. A Spamhaus listing is likely to result in mail being blocked, while a listing on SORBS, UCEPROTECT, or SpamCannibal might not have much impact on your deliverability.
Large mailbox providers typically use reputable blacklists like Spamhaus, whereas smaller mailbox providers who aren’t aware of which blacklists are reputable might use less reputable blacklists.
And a service that asks you to pay for delisting or does not accept delist requests is unlikely to be used by major mailbox providers.
With that said, the first thing is to see how bad of a blacklist you’re on, whether or not you’re constantly on it or if you’re kind of popping in and out of it, and whether or not your deliverability problems result from the IP blacklisting issue.
