Why is Google involved? Is your virtual server hosted by Google?

If there is nothing at all relevant in /var/log/mail.log, Mailman is not
connecting to Postfix on the virtual machine. What are the settings in
mm_cfg.py if any or Defaults.py for SMTPHOST and SMTPPORT.

What is in Mailman's logs? Particularly 'smtp', 'smtp-failure' and 'error'?

Is Mailman even running?
