This seems a bit abnormal - are you trying to forward emails from test.com to some email that resides on an IP address (e.g. [email protected])? Or are you just trying to have a remote mail server handle all your mail for that domain? If it is the latter, have you considered having a MX record that points to that server and configuring that server to accept mail for your domain?

I am sorry for unclear explanation. What i am try to do is as following:
We have a client which has it's own Exchange server, so he want us to work as a spam filter, meaning MX record going to point to our server and our server should perform spam check and send emails to clients Exchange.
Hope this time it's more clear.

I found it.
All i need to do it to place following lines in ROUTERS CONFIGURATION section:
smart_host_your_client:
driver = manualroute
route_list = client's_domain.com 123.123.123.123
transport = remote_smtp
Where client's_domain.com = client domain and 123.123.123.123 = client MTA IP

10x to all

Which router block did you put this? I'm trying to do something similar, only using a file to input the domains to forward, but I can't get the SPAM and ClamAV process to run on the incoming messages before they are passed onto the remote Exchange server.

Thanks for any help!
