Default The Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze - No mail

I'm following through this > http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ispconfig-3-p4

Which is a amazing How To guide but as I'm not a linux person. I'm trying to make a few tweaks to it and hope someone can confirm whether this is right.

I'm going to have my email hosted with Google Apps so I don't need the email stuff. I'm thinking of making the following changes to the guide:

Step 10: what the guide says
apt-get install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server openssl getmail4 rkhunter binutils dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d sudo
What I think I should do
apt-get install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server openssl rkhunter binutils sudo
Step 11: what the guide says
pt-get install amavisd-new spamassassin clamav clamav-daemon zoo unzip bzip2 arj nomarch lzop cabextract apt-listchanges libnet-ldap-perl libauthen-sasl-perl clamav-docs daemon libio-string-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl libnet-ident-perl zip libnet-dns-perl
Step 11 is what I'm really struggling with. as I can't work out what I need don't need here.

Skip step 14 all together

Step 16 -
apt-get install bind9 dnsutils
Skip All together because my dns is being managed centrally.

then once I've installed ISPConfig 3 set it in the server options to send mail to SMTP for the google account.

Is this right? to give me a server where no inbound mail is dealt with, but any php scripts can still send mail out if they are not able to connect directly with the smtp server.
