Problems with Postfix/PHP

I have my domains email handled through Microsofts Live Custom Domains, so my MX record for the domain points there.. on my linux box running Ubuntu 7.04 I have a LAMP install.. I put Joomla on it with Community Builder.. I have tried SO many times configuring Postfix to send mail but the mail never goes out from the web pages.. I see them listed in mailq as trying to contact the hotmail mx server and I dont want it to go through there.. could someone please tell me exactly how i can configure postfix to just mail stuff off on its own not using anything else.. please help ive been at this darn mail thing for almost 2 days straight and if i have to go into and too many more times i think im gonna loose it.. I just want the server to be able to mail out on its own, not recieve.

Post your config and does your host have a FQDN? What do your logs indicate?

Also, can you send simple test messages from the command line using mail or the like?

mail -s 'TEST MAIL'
