    Go on, have a guess
    The log is pretty self-explanatory:

    007-06-28 17:30:37 SMTP connection from [clientip1]:50014 I=[serverip]:25 (TCP/IP connection count = 2)

    The IP [clientip1] has connected to the IP [serverip] on port 25. That's all that means. Presumably, this is your clients relaying email through your server.
