The referenced IP is 197.251.240.60. A check, using the tool provided by MX Tool Box shows this IP is blacklisted in a number of places:

BARRACUDA
http://www.barracudanetworks.com/reputa ... 251.240.60

https://barracudacentral.org/lookups/lookup-reputation
The IP address 197.251.240.60 is listed as "poor" on the Barracuda Reputation System. To request removal, please click here.

Why is my IP listed on the Barracuda Reputation System?
"Through Barracuda Central, the Barracuda Reputation System manages a real-time database of IP addresses with a "good" and "poor" reputation for sending valid emails. From time to time, a valid IP address may be marked as "poor," which may be caused by one of the following reasons:

Your email server contains a virus and has been sending out spam.
Your email server may be improperly configured.
Your PC may be infected with a virus or botnet software program.
Someone in your organization may have an infected PC with a virus or botnet program.
You may be using a dynamic IP address which was previously used by a known spammer.
Your marketing department may be sending out bulk emails that do not comply with the CAN-SPAM Act.
You may have an insecure wireless network which is allowing unknown users to use your network to send spam.
In some rare cases, your recipient's Barracuda Spam Firewall may be improperly configured."

Suggest you need to address the referenced issues before seeking to have your IP address removed from the Barracuda "poor" listing; and addressing these issues will help you in resolving the other black listings noted below:

Spamhaus ZEN
More Information About Spamhaus Zen
Inclusion in the Spamhaus-ZEN Blacklist results from sub-listings in one more the following Blacklists:

CBL - You have contracted a Virus or Malware that is operating a Botnet, either on your email server on a workstation behind the NAT - Continual delisting requests without eliminating the virus will result in permanent blacklisting;
XBL (Spamhaus Exploits Block List) is a realtime database of IP addresses of hijacked PCs infected by illegal 3rd party exploits, including open proxies;
PBL - Spamhaus PBL is a DNSBL database of end-user IP address ranges which should not be delivering unauthenticated SMTP email to any Internet mail server except those provided for specifically by an ISP for that customer's use.
Spamhaus Zen Reports Dynamic Ip Addresses
Dynamic-based Blacklists will list many DHCP ranges of IP Addresses from Internet Service Providers. You could be listed if your IP Address was previously dynamically assigned, or if your ISP gave you a static assignment and did not assign a distinguished PTR-Record, aka a "Reverse DNS Entry."

Spamhaus Zen Reports Open Relays
Relay/Proxy-based Blacklists typically list email servers and/or hostnames that are sending Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE) that is clearly from email addresses that are not hosted on the server or that do not match the SMTP Banner/Hostname of the Email Server, commonly referred to as an Open Relay. An Open (Mail) Relay is an SMTP server configured in such a way that it allows anyone on the Internet to send e-mail through it, not just mail destined to or originating from known users.

Spamhaus Zen Reports Sources Of Spam
Spam-based Blacklists are those that will list either single IP Addresses or entire ranges that have actually received Spam, i.e. Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE) in their Spamtraps from an IP-Address. This could be a result of a compromised email account, an Open Relay, or simply sending mass emails / marketing and not following best practices according to the "CAN-SPAM Act of 2003" (ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAN-SPAM_Act_of_2003)

Spamhaus Zen Reports Virus Infected Sources
Virus-based Blacklists are those that will list single IP Addresses (or hostnames) of email servers that have sent Spam traffic that is generated by some form of a Virus, Malware, Trojan, or "botnet" infection in a network. This is often a result of a user visiting a webpage that houses an infection and downloads malware on a PC which then creates a "mini SMTP" server used to hijack account information, and send bulk email to recipients in the Users' email address book. It can affect the actual machine housing the "Email server platform" or on a local PC which is allowed to connect to the Email Server IP Address on SMTP port 25.

Spamhaus Zen Requires A Manual Delisting Request
This blacklist does support a manual request to remove or delist your IP Address from their database. Please note that removal requests that are submitted without addressing the core problem will likely result in your IP Address or Domain being relisted in that database, which can cause subsequent problems and extended listing periods without release.

Reason for listing - No Details Available
