Strange Mailer Activity

I am getting a lot of strange bounces in my inbox. I checked to make sure
that my mailer wasn't running as an open relay.
Running #ps aux | less
I see some possibilities of processes running sendmail. Is
./s5N5AsEo003358 the file that is calling sendmail?
root 6961 0.0 0.3 12864 5540 - I 12:24PM 0:00.18 sendmail:
./s5N5AsEo003358 zb169.net.: user open (sendmail)
There are also a lot of "to" entries in my maillog that don't look like
they are being sent from any of my users. Also, I no longer use my server
as a relay of any sort. Everyone is now using gmail to send, and my
friends have custom email domains that I host incoming mail for. This mail
is no longer spooled on my server. It is just redirected to their (and
my) google accounts.
