Unable to send email with sendmail from PHP 5.3 on CentOS VM

I have a longstanding issue on my CentOS 5.6 VM where I am unable to send email from my PHP application.

This is the last bunch of lines from my /var/log/maillog file.

Code:
Feb 14 10:29:16 dev53 sendmail[4637]: s1EATEEo004637: Authentication-Warning: www.craig.dev-crmpicco.lan: apache set sender to client.care@crmpicco.co.uk using -f

I know for certain that the issue is not with the PHP code as the exact same code works in the office, however when WFH (on a seperate VM with the same code) I am unable to send emails.

I am trying to establish if this is because of my sendmail setup, IP whitelisting at the mail server end or hosts file setup or anything like that?

Note: I have masked the true name of the domain for security reasons for this post.

The destination user cmorton seems to be unknown for crmpicco.co.uk
Code:
...to=<cmorton@crmpicco.co.uk>...User unknown...

It turns out this is due to Spam Filtering at the mail server end:

When I look at the messages sitting in my mail log that have been returned I get a link to this:

IP Address Classification Lookup | Sophos Threat Center | SophosLabs

So it would appear to be a configuration issue with the mail server.
