Yeah they usually simply do /24 blocks. From what I remember in the
blacklist 550 response it says a removal link? Something like

http://unblock.secureserver.net/?ip=x.x.x.x right?

-r

GoDaddy is about as worthless of a mail provider and it gets.  I can't 
count the number of times I've had customers get themselves blacklisted 
by GoDaddy and not be able to get unlisted.  Finding a contact number 
for them used to be damn near impossible.  Finding a competent mail 
admin on the other end actually was impossible.  My own company got 
blacklisted by GoDaddy a little over a year ago.  A user with an 
infected laptop relayed infected email out through the corporate 
firewall's NAT pool (no longer blindly permitted).  GoDaddy's response? 
  The entire /24 used by our corporate firewall was blacklisted 
intermittently for about 6 months.

Our recommendation to our clients and our SP customers is to not use 
GoDaddy's mail services.  Pick a mail provider that's known for being 
responsive.
