mail server log reading help

From: mowgli
Sent on: Friday, June 14, 2013 3:54 PM
below is an excerpt from the mail.info log file of my mail server.  i want to learn the meaning of what i see.  am i correct that:
  1. the posts w/ timestamp 14:47 all detail the external sender sending email to my mail server (myserver.com).
  2. myserver.com is rejecting the sender due to my spam or virus filter?  i cant tell.
  3. the posts w/ timestamp 14:57 & after are about emails from myserver.com to the external server?
  4. if so, why does the 1st line in this part say sender address triggers filter?  how can my own server reject my own address as spam/virus/etc?  or what does that line mean?
  5. does the last line mean myserver.com sent the email to the external but the external rejected the email b/c the external address isnt valid/doesnt exist?  i think so b/c it says error code 550.
  6. i only sent 1 test email to the external address, but the this last section looks like there were 2 sent?  i think so b/c i see 2 different status=sent 250 lines.
thanx for all feedback!
