Default Postfix 550 - User unknown in virtual mailbox table / google apps

People, right now I have a site (oscommerce) that uses a form to send a mail from the page...

As I understand, the error that I am getting is that "informes@altezaunderwear.com.ar doesn't exist". That is true, that mailbox doesn't exist because mx records for this domains are pointing to google apps.

Jun 16 16:02:29 mx1 postfix/smtpd[5029]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from site1.tecatest.com.ar[]: 550 5.1.1 <informes@altezaunderwear.com.ar>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table; from=<web4@site1.tecatest.com.ar> to=<informes@altezaunderwear.com.ar> proto=ESMTP helo=<site1.tecatest.com.ar>

So, I have a multiserver enviroment. site1 is web server, it only wait for emails from localhost, and relay these mails to mail server. Mail server rejects them with error 550...

How can I solve this? I need that emails go first to dns, and then define where to be relayed (to my mailserver or to another server, eg: google).

Do I have to change something in main.cf of my mailserver? maybe "mydestination value"?

My mailserver is named: mx1.tecatest.com.ar

mydestination = mx1.tecatest.com.ar, localhost, localhost.localdomain

I had a mail domain for this domain so... postfix was trying to reach the vmailbox locally... deleting mail domain fixes everything...

My girlfriend will kill me if she advise that lost 27 mails but well... xD

Can I "thanks" myself? lol XD
