Postfix not sending mail, using google apps


Alright, I've searched and searched and searched and have decided to break down and ask my question on here. So here's the deal, I would like to have all my domains on my Linux server to be using google apps and the MX records and what not is all configured and is working (I can send an email from my normal GMail account (username@gmail.com) to my google apps email (username@domain.com) and vis versa and I can also email back to myself as long as I don't do the allies that I've made and this is all using Outlook). But what's happening is that some of the PHP scripts that I have uses the mail() call function and it's not sending the mail out but instead holding it in the mail queue doing nothing but rust.

I've searched all over the place on how to configure it for google apps from which one says to create a cert with openssl but when I try to for the last part it Keep getting an error about not finding a file (if I had the link of the steps I was following I would of been more then happy to link it). Plus it seems like most of those articles were out of date anyways and more likely for an older version of openssl is what I figure.

But, anyways, I've tried many different settings to get it working but seems to not want to work. If anyone can please help me out to get it to actually send mail I'll be really thankful, hell, I don't even care if we use my ISP's mail server (which is smtp.west.cox.net using SSL port 465 compare to google's TLS port 564 and more stubborn).

Here's my maillog information:

Alright, after digging in and pulling my hair out, I decided to give my hosting provider's smtp server a shot and made a few changes and got it going so it's working now.
