Stop right there.
Are the IP addresses you are sending mail from Dynamic?
Do you *own* those addresses?

Why are they, "Dynamic"?
Mail should never be coming from Dynamic IP addresses.

… customer IP ranges because they're
"included in...[a] third party block list". The list in question is the

They clearly *DO* understand.
They know exactly what the PBL is.

that the SpamHaus PBL (unlike other
SpamHaus lists) is not a list of IPs that have sent spam. I'm looking
for someone with a clue that can help me.

You need to understand why they are not interested in your traffic as you currently describe your ability to send it.

P.S. Even ignoring the PBL, this policy of not enrolling IP ranges that
are listed on DNSBLs doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Even if the IPs
had been sending spam, wouldn't Microsoft want the ISP's help in
stopping that?

They *HAVE* stopped it. :) Already.
