Question Postfix/Spamassassin on firewall

Here is my current network set-up

internet ---> Firewall/postfix (RH8) ---> Squid/Domino (RH7.3) --> LAN Clients

What I am trying to do is add postfix to my firewall machine to act only as a spam filter. All incoming email needs to be checked and then forwarded to the Domino server (on cross-over cable) for distribution to the clients. I used to use Sendmail but switched due to security concerns. Has anyone else set up a postfix/spammassassin server to act as a mail firewall? I found one page on a Red Hat site about this but it wasn't very helpful.

I have heard that as long as all you want postfix to do is forward all mail to an internal server, it is much easier than sendmail to set up. I wrote my file as instructed by RH's howto, but it doesn't seem to be forwarding mail. Can someone with this type of setup post their *.cf entries for me please?

Postfix -->
