Sharing a mail server with a malicious domain can be detrimental to your organization’s reputation and can very well cause your domain’s inclusion in a blacklist. Use Reverse MX Lookup to get a list of all your mail server co-occupants so you can do thorough background checks on them. Make sure none of them are known spammers, phishers, or malware hosts.
