Default Postifx configuration problem, no route to host

I've successfully installed an Ubuntu Server 7.1 with ISPConfig as the hosting panel, i've set up a new site and was trying to install the PHPMotion platform...

Everything looks to be fine, but when i try to create a new account, it is supposed to send a confirmation email...

I think there's a problem with the postfix configuration... since my ISP has blocked port 25 i've changed the configuration to use port 26....

But i still can't send smails...

Here's the sudo netstat -tap result:

if your ISP has blocked port 25 outbound then your setup will never work, changing your local postfix to port 26 is not going to help you as the servers you are trying to send mail to are listening on port 25.

Why dont you use your ISP as a relayhost ?
