New with sendmail, not receiving mail after sending

I'm new to Sendmail and I want to be able to grab various stats from the Linux servers that I manage to monitor them.

Sendmail is running on my main Linux server and I can go thru the motions of sending an email to my MS Outlook client, which is what I use at work.

However I never get the email and if I check /var/spool/mqueue, I don't see any email queued up, and if I put a tail -f on /var/log/mail, this is what I'm seeing:

Feb  3 10:20:38 computername sendmail[31432]: t13GKcri031432: from=cmmiller, size=77, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, relay=cmmiller@localhost
Feb  3 10:20:39 computername sendmail[31433]: t13GKcVO031433: from=<>, size=425, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost.localdomain []
Feb  3 10:20:39 computername sendmail[31432]: t13GKcri031432: to=myemailaddress@com, ctladdr=cmmiller (602/602), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=relay, pri=30077, relay=[] [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (t13GKcVO031433 Message accepted for delivery)
Feb  3 10:20:39 computername sendmail[31435]: t13GKcVO031433: to=<myemailaddress@com>, ctladdr=<> (602/602), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=smtp, pri=120425, relay=smtp.server. [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (+OK message queued for delivery.)
Not sure what to troubleshoot here, and if anyone can point me to better information, thanks.

The email was sent. The delivery status notification (dsn) from the remote server was:
dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (+OK message queued for delivery.)

So the error is on the receiving end. Two possibilities are:
1) The message was silently dropped due to anti-spam rules.
2) The message was accepted, but the address was wrong so it was not delivered to you.

You need to check the log on the receiver to find out what the problem is.

It went into my spambox on Outlook, my mistake.
