I forwarded my cPanel password to a programmer who was suppose to work on the website. Unfortunately he abuse my trust to create a new email account which he used after to send trojans. The hosting service caught it after aprox. 15.000 email were send and blocked the account. I deleted that account but I'm worried to get some kind of blacklisted for any email address with that @example.com ending or even worst the whole website example.com.

It there something I need to do to be able to prevent that?

You can check to see if your server's IP address and host name have been added to blacklists by entering them in the blacklist tool here: http://mxtoolbox.com/NetworkTools.aspx

If you have been added to any blacklists, you can go to the website for that blacklist and follow their instructions for having your server removed.
