Now handling the outgoing based on the recipient domain, several have a transport routing setup
Commonly the format is
Recipient domain:nexthop

*:default next hop
:default next hop

The transport rule is only needed when the mail server does not have a direct path to the net. If it has a path to the net, you can allow it to use DNS to identify the servers responsible for each recipients domain and have it deliver the messages ....
