Unfortunately due to the limited availability of IP addresses sometimes they are re-used from sources that have been black listed in the past. Generally blacklists are updated within 30 days of an IP not being reported for spam.
However many services like Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and others, have taken to using their own systems and IPs will remain blocked until specifically requested that it be removed.
