Sorry I don't understand your questions what do you ask??

I checked the mail log and noticed so man fake email from my domain trying to send out emails for example: xyz@mydomain.com 1235@mydomain.com and literally thousand such fake ids

Are they causing my mail server to be blocked and being labeled as a spam server??

How can I stop this?? Please help

Yes, that could be the case. Please check if your server is an open relay: http://www.spamhelp.org/shopenrelay/

If it is not, it's possible that spammers abuse a web application on your server - please make sure you have the latest updates installed.
