postfix gateway


hi, i'm trying to setup postfix as a gateway to an internal postfix gateway on the same domain. my mail gateway is smtp.test.domain and my internal mail server is mailx.test.domain.

if i try to mail i.e. user@testlab.spi, the error is too many hops and the mail is bounced back to the sender.
i modified some entries of "main.cf" on the gateway...
mydestination =
local_recipent_maps =
relay_domains = test.domain

...and my /etc/postfix/transport is
test.domain smtp:[mailx.test.domain]
and did a postmap command.

on my internal mail server...
relayhost = smtp.test.domain

but no success, mail is bouncing.

i'll appreciate any help thanks...

where is it bouncing? check where it's been by looking at the added email headers.
