[Dshield] Avoiding blacklisted web hosts

Hopefully the following question falls in the realm of security, as I
don't wish to abuse the list.

I have had the misfortune of twice picking web hosting services (with
e-mail, of course), where the IP of my mail server ended up in someone's
black hole list through no fault of my own.

I'm starting a search for yet another host for a client, and want to
avoid that mistake. Is there a tool or service I can use that will
check/has checked various web hosts for various security issues,
including but not necessarily limited to e-mail status?
