I have had server IP's blacklisted by Microsoft a few times and I have had them removed reasonably quickly. I noticed that after entering and joining anti spam related services that they recommend it was faster and easier.
I recommend that you ensure that you can reply Yes to the below questions (except the last one) in the web form where you ask for ...
Because Microsoft Edge presents a User-Agent string that contains the word Chrome. And, for that matter, Safari.
Check out http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ and you'll see something like this:
This is deliberate on Microsoft's behalf to fool naïve user-agent checks into thinking that it's not Internet Explorer. Which it isn't.
MS keeps updating the list of Windows Virtual PC VHDs of different Internet Explorer versions so they MAY provide it during their next update cycle.
There are multiple options to test web apps in IE6. Check this Smashing Mag review of free & commercial tools for cross-browser testing to find out which will fit your need best.

The free IETester application allows you to test IE10 preview, IE9, IE8, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5 on Windows 7, Vista and XP, and requires no installation of separate virtual images. I've been using it for several years for IE tests without issue.

Sign up with JMRP via https://postmaster.live.com/snds/JMRP.aspx
Sign up with SNDS via http://postmaster.live.com/snds
The JMRP application will go through a form and a document you need to sign. In our case it took about two days to get approved.

Interesting - I never knew that!
Just tested from my custom web server (Rapid Server) and got the same results (3 GET requests after clicking on a hyperlink), so we know it's not the web server:
127.0.0.1:1062 - - [17/Oct/2014:03:57:45 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 0

StartCom are in the Microsoft list of root certificate issuers. The process whereby the certificates get updated is described here. In brief - the certificates used by IE are recognised by the operating system, not on the browser version. If this IE6 is on XP, and the XP machine received Windows updates, then it could be that they weren't recognised in 2010, ...
Microsoft has now launched modern.ie, a website dedicated to testing web pages in Internet Explorer.
It includes downloads of virtual machines for testing (although not currently for IE 6):
The deep link to get whitelisted for Microsoft's email network is:
This gives you the form "Sender Information for Outlook.com Delivery"
In my testing, Firefox 41 and Chrome 45 are affected; IE 11 and Safari 8 are not. I have not tested other versions of these browsers.
What makes it worthwhile providing metadata?
The fact that companies like Google and Microsoft provide this metadata also themselves? Or the fact that these companies make use of the metadata you provide?
The Schema.org sponsor’s search engines provide no (Bing, Yahoo, Yandex) to little (Google) metadata using the Schema.org vocabulary, and this might ...

You need to set maxAllowedContentLength, not maxRequestLength to up the allowed upload size for IIS. the former is the IIS request length limit, the latter is the ASP.NET request length limit.
Also important to know is that maxAllowedContentLength is the length in bytes, whereas maxRequestLength is the length in kilobytes.

Unfortunately at this time Microsoft does not have a global "Report a False Positive" feature which would allow your website to be scanned, re-assessed and marked as safe for all 365 users. There is however an option that your user can do and that is request from their IT department to add your site to their custom whitelist (https://support.office.com/en-us/...
On occasion entities that file a DMCA take down notice against a web host will also do so against search engines to try and get rid of as many traces of the offending content as possible. This has the net effect of reducing or eliminating ranking as the various major signals used in ranking are lost due to removal of the page or site from the index.
Since your site is using HTTPS, according to what you said above, this means that some of the content being loaded into the browser is being loaded over HTTP instead of HTTPS (aka mixed content). This can be used to compromise the session, which is why it is saying it is unsafe.
To fix this, you will need to make sure that all content is loaded over HTTPS. ...

Is it safe to delete everything in the root of the host and upload my new website?
Yes. None of those directories are required to the webserver to operate.
If anything goes wrong, will I be able to simple re-upload the old website and restore everything as it was before? I've read that uploading Frontpage websites via ftp is discouraged.
