      In your example, Postfix will still perform an MX lookup on bar.example.
      Depending on the DNS configurtion of the other site, the transport table
      might not make a difference.

      When using the transport table (and similar Postfix mechanisms) always
      take a moment to consider whether MX lookups are acceptable. If they're
      not, remember to enclose the hostname in square brackets.

      Stop top-posting.
