I have been trying to figure this on my own with no success. I have very limited understanding of technical problems like these but a lot of tenacity in trying to solve them. I have read as much as I could before posting, but I am still foggy on what I can do to help myself. I would REALLY appreciate your assistance.
This is the history of the problem:
Our household has a desktop with a router and a laptop. The problem is with the laptop. I am using Outlook to send/receive emails from a couple of yahoo accounts I have. A couple of months ago I noticed that my emails are being directed to people's spam folders but ignored it. About a week ago, I sent out a personal email to a few recipients, and two of them were bounced back to me with my DNS listed with SpamCop. I delisted myself and waited out a bit. I have not sent any emails from Outlook except 3 or 4 a day just to test whether I was delisted as promised. No such luck.
Upon being blocked, I ran all sorts of scans on my computer and removed a Trojan. I thought that would fix everything. It's been a few days now, but every time I try to email out, I get a bounce from SpamCop. When I follow the link, I get "it'll be delisted in 22 hours"; so I wait 22 hours and try again and yet another DNS gets blocked and so it goes. This is the email I get back:
Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

I have contacted my ISP (shaw in Canada), who say it's not their fault and directed me to yahoo mail services. I have sent an email to them with no response (2 days ago). I really don't know what to do.
I hope I have given you enough information here to guide me to a solution.
Thank you so much for looking at this.
