configuring postfix to send mail
I'm simply trying to configure postfix on a Ubuntu 9.04 server to send mail. I don't need pop or imap support, just so PHP scripts can send mail from apache served pages. New to postfix, so step by step instructions would be great.

Check this link
you can also configure webmin with ubuntu which also have the postifx smtp configured
Thank you cganeshkumar,
I think I'm a little confused conceptually. I have a mail server running on a domain, and this is on a subdomain of that. For example, the domain is www.domain.com, and this server uses the domain dev.domain.com. I just want it to send mail, and I've followed the instructions in the link and it still does not seem to be working. Here's the error log message:
Feb 18 07:59:08 xxx postfix/error: 508C311888C: to=<email@example.com>, relay=none, delay=0.22, delays=0.2/0.01/0/0.01, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (delivery temporarily suspended: connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]:10024
: Connection refused)

thank you for those links. I already have ISPConfig installed, and I hear webmin interferes with that. I will have a look through those links tho just to be sure.
OK, I fixed that first error message by turning off amavisd, because I don't need it anyway. Now I'm getting an error:
Feb 18 09:34:33 xxxx postfix/smtp: C1508118898: to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, relay=none, delay=0.05, delays=0.05/0/0/0, dsn=4.3.5, status=deferred (unable to look up host localdomain: Name or service not known)
