external mail server

I use Google Apps to host mail for all my sites, so I don't have any local mail accounts. Recently I moved all my sites from a server running ISPConfig 2.0 to one that is running ISPConfig 3.0.

On my old server I enabled the "External Mail" option for my sites so that php scripts can correctly send mail.

On the new server, I disabled the mail module for all the websites, but whenever a script tries to send mail i get these errors:


Jul 11 09:09:25 postfix/smtp[7234]: 80531136CE6: to=<>, relay=none, delay=1186, delays=1186/0.02/0/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to[]:10024: Connection refused)
What do I need to do to correctly send out going mail from my server?

Thank you

In ISPConfig 3 you simply have to configure nothing if you dont want to use an external mail server as ispconfig 3 does not configure the mail server when you create a website.

The error message is there bacause you missed to start amavisd.
