    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.
