SMTP Issue

For some reason I cannot seem to get GL to send mail with SMTP. I have configured the mail section in config.php per the instructions. When I test it via signing up for a new account I never recieve an email. My current configuration is:

[CODE]$_CONF['mail_settings'] = array (
'backend' => 'smtp', // can be one of 'mail', 'sendmail', 'smtp'

// sendmail parameters (only needed for 'backend' => 'sendmail'Wink
'sendmail_path' => '/usr/bin/sendmail',
'sendmail_args' => '',

// SMTP parameters (only needed for 'backend' => 'smtp'Wink
'host' => 'localhost',
'port' => '25',
'auth' => true,
'username' => 'test@website.com',
'password' => 'test'


The SMTP server works fine as I tested the username and PW with Outlook. Also, when I tail the mail log and sign up for a new account the mail server never even shows the GL settings trying to hit it. I also looked at any GL logs and none of them say anything. Am I missing something really simple here? It seems like the emails go off into some email black hole.

FYI: The Mail server and GL reside on the same server and yes the mail server is set to relay 'localhost' mail. I also tried to change 'localhost' to smtp.website.com and this did not work either.
And Yes I did restart the server and triple checked settings.

Any help is appreciated. TIA
