Postfix relay


I'm trying to setup postfix MTA which relays mail to another MTA i have on my local network. i installed postfix no problem and i can telnet into it and send e-mails. Below is a simple drawing of my net:
Code:
Qmail/SqurielMail--<-Relay--< PostFix/MailScanner --<--IPCOP Firewall
Postfix: 192.168.0.201. Qmail: 192.168.0.200.

i setup smtp port forwarder to 192.168.0.201.
I have the following config in /etc/postfix/main.cf :
Code:
        myhostname = mailgw.mydomain
                mydomain = mydomain.com
                myorgin = $mydomain
                inet_interfaces = all
                mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain $mydomain
                mynetwork_style = host
                relay_domains= relay_domain.com
                transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
i appended this line to /etc/postfix/trasport:
Code:
relay_domain smtp:192.168.0.200
then i did:
Code:
postmap /etc/postfix/transport
postfix stop
postfix start
then i tried to send a test message from Gmail to my user@relay_domain.com and it's not going through. Here is what i get from /var/log/maillog:

Code:
Apr  2 13:54:22 mailgw postfix/smtpd[21060]: connect from ug-out-1314.google.com[66.249.92.173]
Apr  2 13:54:22 mailgw postfix/smtpd[21060]: D7FF14EDD3: client=ug-out-1314.google.com[66.249.92.173]

Apr  2 13:54:53 mailgw postfix/smtpd[21060]: disconnect from ug-out-1314.google.com[66.249.92.173]
i never recieved test e-mails. From the log above, it seems that postfix is not relaying. i don't know if there is another log i should look at for errors. Any ideas?
