Recently my main IP was blacklisted as a spam IP since one of my forums was hijacked and used to send tons of spam in the 'daily updates' emails that got sent from the system. I have since upgraded the forums, removed daily updates feature and cleaned out all of the spam emails that were clogging my mail queue. The issue I am facing now is that I have a couple hundred valid emails that need to get sent to my users so they can activate their accounts, etc, and they wont go anywhere since the IP was blacklisted. I have several other IPs I can use on my hosted server, but how do I change the IP that was being used under 'localhost' to a different one? The rest of my IPs are still fine and not blacklisted. Thanks in advance for your help.

That really depends on the system you are working on. If it is a Linux server with exim, you might try adding this to you exim.conf

interface = not.blacklisted.ip.address

Change the not.blacklisted.ip.address into any real IP-address of your server (which you can find through ifconfig).

Or try to use GMail as outgoing smtp-server:
