Currently my server's ip address is blocked by a mail network so all mails went to spam box. I want to change this IP to another IP address. Is that possible? how can I do that? any suggestions?

You need to ask your server provider if they can change your IP or add a new one but you need to keep your IP clean from sending spam for a time then mail network will start trusting your IP address. The best solution is to use an outbound filter service though, like MailChannels or SpamExperts. You can also use a service like Zoho mail to send your emails.

Yes if you are hosting through a DC send a request to support and they can issue you a new set of IPs.

Yes, it can be possible to change the mail server IP but you can ask your server provider to change or provide new/fresh IP,

In this scenario, there is a possibility that you have sent bulk of emails that contains spam keywords and due to which that RBLs blacklisted your IP, that resulting in your mails getting rejected or going to the spam folder.

Solutions could be check your email content before sending and it should not contain any spam keywords also you can use a third-party SMTP email service, if you want to do bulk or promotional emailing then you can use that because they maintain their IP reputations that help your emails going to Inbox folder.

Follow the below steps to change your IP in the hosting server Linux?

Login to your server and switch to the root user
Open the network configuration file & update it accordingly.
#root: vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 Press I( for insert ) and change the file once updated; press ESC & save the setting :)w). also, you have to change the hostname and the machine's default gateway. For this, you have to edit one more file #root: vi /etc/sysconfig/network; modify the configuration by utilizing the "i" to change your new hostname & gateway information.
After completion, hit ESC and save the setting using :)w ) Reboot machine using: #root: reboot or restart network by #root: service network restart.
You can now see the new IP address and the hostname you had assigned.

On a Linux system, changing the IP address requires both executing the ifconfig command and editing the files that will make the change permanent. The procedure is identical to that used on a Solaris system, with the exception that a new set of files must be updated. The appropriate actions to follow can vary according to the Linux distribution you are running.
Even if this fails, kindly contact your service provider and ask for their assistance.

Typically a server doesn't directly ban individual IPs, rather refers to blacklist databases like SORBS, RSBL, etc. You can find a full list of them along with the details at sites like mxtoolbox or dnschecker.

Ideal would be, to check if your IP exists in any of those blacklists and attempt to get it removed from there instead of adding a new IP and ending up blacklisting that as well.
