Generally speaking, mail is flagged as spam by ISPs because of the
content or the source. If the source is blacklisted, it is normally by
IP address, not name.

Your mail server needs to be properly configured. This means that the
name with which it identifies itself in HELO/EHLO must be a fully
qualified domain name that resolves to the IP it is sending from and
that a rDNS lookup of that IP returns the same name.
