Wireshark will do a packet capture.   You can easily see if smtp traffic is being sent out.

Also if you have a router check the router logs for unusually numerous SMTP traffic, or port 25 traffic.

Block the outbound SMTP connections from any system on your network with the exception of your internal relay server.
This way you can look at the logs on your internal mail server and depending on the mail server you have, you could use/implement a mechanism that will curb the inordinate influx of outgoing emails from single source.
