Google mail pointing to IP6.

Currently in the mailq of postfix there are two emails that is not being sent out.

Here is what mailq is stating.
------------ start---------------------
A7508372126A 2274 Tue Nov 20 10:13:07
(connect to ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM[2607:f8b0:400e:c03::1a]:25: Network is unreachable)


67C42372190D 145632 Tue Nov 20 14:41:59
(connect to[2607:f8b0:4002:c04::1a]:25: Network is unreachable)

------------- end --------------------

What setting am I doing wrong?

I am not running IP6 on my server.

It is always for google mail for these two accounts.

Really need advice on how to solve this.

Please try


inet_protocols = ipv4
in your /etc/postfix/ and restart Postfix.
