    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.

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