Default External mail server with gmail MX service

Hi.
I'm tryng to use external mail service offered by Gmail setting how MX the 5 mail server of Gmail.

i have a problem making this....

I have setting on my domain the option "external mail server" on the host www.mysite.com and host mysite.com

When setting up the host "mail.mysite.com" in dns manager i have added IP address of my machine, and have hadded 5 mail server of Gmail in the MX section of DNS manager.

Quering host mail.mysite.com:

Getting MX record for mail.mysite.com (from local DNS server, may be cached)... Got it!

Host Preference IP(s) [Country]
alt1.aspmx.l.google.com. 10 72.14.205.27 [US]
alt2.aspmx.l.google.com. 20 64.233.167.114 [US]64.233.167.27 [US]

This test see correctly the MX address of Gmail server....

But.......
when send an email to test@mysite.com form email address hosted on the same server, it return this error postfix message:

The Postfix program

<test@mysite.com>: mail for mysite.com loops back to
myself

Postfix tryng to send this mail at host mail.mysite.com with my ip...
But host mail.mysite.com have different external Gmail mail server.

I can not add to host mail.mysite.com an IP...because Gmail mail server not offer a static ip to associate to my host mail.mysite.com

He is obvious that host mail.mysite.com try to send mail at ip address associated to host mail.mysite.com

How can solve this Issue!?!?!
I can not use Gmail external mail service?!
