Out of the box it can be very difficult to simply 'stop' clients getting IPs blacklisted. An email relay can be added though (we use MailChannels) which does a good job at this though.

If a client or even you have an email verification email set up, and a recipient has then your verification email will bounce back and the same with their causing a loop and this will continue until 1 party stops it. This can be picked up by either mail server as spam and get the other IP blacklisted.

This is something that is difficult to stop unless you dont have a verification system in place
