outbound emails stuck in queue

Setting up a exchange server 2010. routing email though google apps for spam purposes only. I am now receiving emails but if I try to send an email it goes to the users sent items, then hours later I get a delayed message from exchange.
I have configured the outbound connector to point to google.  but the emails are still sitting in my exchange queue, any ideas?

ok, so just went through my set up again and realised I set up the outbound connector as a custom connector not internet connector. emails now work .
