For any dedicated hosting setup, it's key to find out (if possible)  
in advance what the IP address will be so it can be checked in the  
various black hole lists. Some of these hosting providers have entire  
netblocks blacklisted. It becomes very hard to get email from a host  
in the netblock to go to places that are aggressively anti-spam.

I have a dedicated host at ServerPronto.com that's been great. They  
have among the best rates. But it's taken a while to get the IP  
addresses I have cleared out of various spam lists.

Example (thankfully not listed on any lists)
