postpone until

Hello everyone,

I'm having some problems with the verb postpone.

I understood that it works as follows most of the cases:
We agreed to postpone the meeting by two hours.

Is it also possible to use the preposition until?
We agreed to postpone the meeting until we define an interesting topic.

The sentence above doesn't sound right to me.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

    Dn is correct: Your sentence is fine. "Until" can refer to a condition (as in your sentence) or to a time (the meeting was postposed until four o'clock).
