POSTFIX Help


I'm tring to setup an email server. All the reading I've done has made it quite clear that postfix is much easier then sendmail. Anyway I think I nailed the whole thing only I can't get out. Port scan shows port is up from outside the firewall. I don't think I have a postfix problem as much as think I have a smtpd problem. I'm not sure anyway. heres my postconf and some syslog outputs.
See what you think..

The error I'm getting in the syslog whenever I reload postfix I get this:
May 5 18:20:17 hostname postfix/nqmgr[6985]: warning: connect to transport smtp: Connection refused

I can telnet to the port
and send a message out but it gets stuck in the queue and I get this:
May 5 18:19:14 hostname postfix/nqmgr[6946]: 4B068116FB8: to=<anotherhostname@samedomain.net>, relay=none, delay=1730, status=deferred (transport is unavailable)

I'm lost and my brain is gone anyone got any ideas what did I forget ?

Would you mind just doing a postconf -n rather than posting your whole configuration ?
