I have a server with iredmail configured and I can't send email. I receive that message in postfix log:

00C3CC04FA: to=jeanpierre.carvalho@solfut.com, relay=none, delay=4797, delays=4766/0.04/30/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to mail.solfut.com[]:25: Connection timed out)

With Gmail happens the same.

When you test the remote mail server with

echo | telnet mail.solfut.com 25

you should get Connected to mail.solfut.com.

If not, then you have a 'simple network issue'.

Try to disable your firewall (or better allow outcoming port TCP 25) in your firewall.

    Blocked traffic Google Compute Engine blocks or restricts traffic through all of the following ports/protocols between the Internet and virtual machines, as well as between two virtual machines when traffic is addressed to their public IP addresses (this also includes load-balanced addresses).
