Default Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Lenny

I'm concerned that my implementation of this server has become compromised. I first noticed that some of my emails were not getting through. I'm not getting any bounces but the emails do not appear to arrive at their destination. In researching this I found that emails sent through my ISP's smtp server arrive at their destination but emails sent throuhg my smtp server may or may not. My ISP does not block outbound port 25.

1. How do I find out if my IP or an IP range at my ISP has been blscklisted?
2. How do I determine if my smtp server is acting as a relay for spam?
3. how can I determine why my emails are not arriving at their destination?
4. What can I read to understand the sometimes cryptic data in my mail log files?
5. What is the meaning of the log data below and why are all those connections timing out?

Any help with these questions would be greatly appreciated

Looking at my mail.info and mail.log files I have several thousand lines of activity for one day only and I have only 3 accounts on this server all used by me. I only send about 2-3 emails per day on average.

The following is a typical minute of activity from mail.log:
