Trouble, nothing but trouble...

I have a new website as of August 2009
I have been having a lot of trouble with my emails not going through and was blaming my host. I found out today that my IP has been blacklisted by a few different entities.
When I look deeper into things it appears there has been trouble with this IP dating back to 2004.
Is it possible to be given a bad IP from the get go? Can I demand a clean IP from my service provider? will that fix these issues?
This is a nightmare and I don't know how to proceed.
Bottom line I need a fix.

Thank -you for your responses

    The result will depend on your host and what their service is like. If your site has been dumped on a shared server they may not be able to provide you with a new IP. This happens occasionally to the best hosts where a particular site that shares an IP with many others ends up with the whole lot being blacklisted.

    If you can't get satisfaction from your host...change hosts.

    Maybe you can move to a professional hosting solution?

    Frankly it's the best option IMO.

    Sounds like you are on a SHARED server. That's why I stopped using shared servers and have my own VPS/dedicated one now. If a spammer resides on the same server as you are, every account on that server will be affected by any blacklisting... since you are on the same IP block.
