      Thank oy for your reply, with your input, I think I've figured most of it out. I do have a couple more questions below:

      Unless the users have real accounts (i.e. accounts accessible via
      getpwnam(3) and friends) you must make the domain a virtual mailbox
      domain. That doesn't necessarily mean that you'll be using virtual(8),

      Since this is going to be a virtual mailbox domain rather than a virtual alias, I think then I don't need to create an entry in virtual(5) correct? One point I forgot to mention in my original e-mail is that even though the recipients don't have mail boxes on the system, their domain name matches the domain name of the SMTP server.

      Define a service for the delivery agent in master.cf and set
      virtual_transport to point to that service. The default master.cf
      should already contain example services for maildrop and Cyrus.

      I understand how do add a virtual tranports in main.cf, how do I match that transport to the domain name? Based on what I've read, I think I do it in the transport(5) file. Is this correct?

      Also, I'll still need to configure main.cf to know about this domain. Is this correct?

      Thank you so much for your help.
