If your system does not have a static IP address, or if the IP does not reverse resolve, then gmail may take it as spam. As to why it is not able to send mails to your office id, you should check the log files for sendmail. You should get some idea where the messages are. Are they being differed, or your remote server is not allowing your server to send messages.
