    So my situationist is a bit frustrating,
    I've just set up a new multiserver on ubuntu 14.04 and everying is good, except, sending to a domain that is on a different server

    outdomain is the server the mail is (trying to) be sent from and indomain is another server I have set up with ispconfig working perfectly fine
    I can send and receive emails to an email address on the same outdomain with no problem, I can also receive emails from any domain, I can't however send an email to any address that isn't on the same server..

    Also a weird thing, is that the mail log isn't going to /var/log/mail.log it's going into the syslog

    something is real weird here and I'm baffled..

    That's local delivery succeeding, your server is configured with, which is why it won't deliver to the external server (if I understand your problem description correctly).

    If you can't send to *any* other domain, then perhaps your default transport is set wrong, what does this show:
    postconf default_transport
    and what do you have set in ISPConfig under Email > Email Routing?

    That's your syslog configuration, you'll need to determine what syslog system you're using (I think rsyslog is the default on debian nowadays) and check it's config (eg. /etc/rsyslog.conf and /etc/rsyslog.d/* for rsyslog).
