To view the log look in /var/log/mail.  You should see information regaring all incoming and outgoing mail.  Also check you dns settings, you should have zones defined for each domain with mx records.  Dig is a useful tool which will show you your current settings.  Try dig --help for the options
There shoud also be in /etc/mail a file called local-host-names which relate to the domains sendmail handles.
Check root's mail, they maybe going there.

I have reposted this question in the Exchange forum..it is more appropriate there..I hope the moderators delete this question ...as it is irrelevant to Linux

You should check for the abc server if this is blacklisted.
