I own a small business with two servers for webhosting. When setting up the primary (CentOS 5.5 + WHM, secondary is WHM DNS Only) server I kinda messed up the firewall, so the hackers could send stuff from my server. My primary IP is x.y.29.218.
Anyway - I got blacklisted in several places, but now those blacklistings are gone. For a week or so, but Google still has my IP blacklisted.
I handling serious damages because of that. Many clients want to switch from my hosting, etc.
I've fixed the hole with CSF firewall SMTP_BLOCK option and enabled also the WHM SMTP TEAK
Currently all I see from the Main >> Email >> View Mail Statistics (Errors section) in WHM is rows and rows of the following message
removed-the-email-address-for-security R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp: SMTP error from remote mail server after end of data: host aspmx.l.google.com [a.b.39.27]: 550-5.7.1 [x.y.29.218 1] Our system has detected an unusual rate of\n550-5.7.1 unsolicited mail originating from your IP address.

What are my options?
I have one IP free. How can I configure Exim to send mail from that IP?
My brain is like constantly blowing up because of this problem. Please someone, who has any knowledge how to deal with the current situation, please give me some kind of help - any help, suggestions, etc.
I've tried everything I know, and I still don't know much, because this is the first time (I just started to webhost, etc) I deal with real physical servers not some kind of pre-setup VPS solution.
Many - many thanks, whoever has time to offer some help.
