Postfix not delivering mail - "delivery temporarily suspended"

    I'm not sure what happened, my server is running on VMware.

    Postfix looks like it's trapping everything in the queue and not delivering it. The message on all items in the queue is:
    (delivery temporarily suspended: connect to[]:10024: Connection refused)

    I'm not sure how to fix this, and I'm relatively new to Linux and to Postfix, I may need some hand holding.

    I appreciate any help that anyone can give me!



    <edit>This is the how-to that I followed when I set up my server:

    I had searched high and low for two days trying to figure this out, I finally stumbled across someone saying to check amavis, I had run an update and realized that after the update it quit working.

    The reason it quit working was my /etc/hostname file did not have a fqdn, it only had my hostname. I added the fqdn and it's good to go now.

    Whew, that one racked my brain!
