strange emails on sendmail queue

strange emails on sendmail queue

(OP)
Hi to all. I see about 2.000 emails similar to this attached on my sendmail queue. I'm running Centos 5 and sendmail 8.13.8. All emails have status "Deferred" because destination address don't exist. I don't know how this emails arrive to my server. Only authenticated user can send mail from sendmail. I already test it. How can I see if some of my users try to send this emails? I'm not able to see this on maillog. I hope this is not a configuration error on my sendmail config file.

I have in logs some line like these:
Jun 9 14:09:46 adlhost60 sendmail[13547]: STARTTLS=client, relay="symailserver.hsbc.co.uk"., version=TLSv1/SSLv3, verify=FAIL, cipher=AES256-SHA, bits=256/256

And now I see that i'm blacklisted on Topian. My server ip is 194.20.145.8.

Can you help me with this issue?
Thanks a lot.
