Question Sendmail possible relay problem

I have a question on sendmail. Am I being used to relay mail by my capture files below. Sendmail is 8.13.3 . Slack 10.1 Thanks in advance. Rick

Sep 2 00:40:40 123 sm-mta[3274]: j824ebOh003274: from=<>, size=0, class=0, nrcpts=0, proto=SMTP, daemon=MTA, []

/etc/mail/access file looks like this.
