      In addition, mail for $mydestination is given to $local_transport,
      mail for $relay_domains is given to $relay_transport, and mail for
      $virtual_mailbox_domains is given to $virtual_transport. Other
      mail is given to $default_transport, or returned as undeliverable.

      The transport map is needed ONLY when Postfix chooses one of
      ($local_transport, $relay_transport, $virtual_transport,
      $default_transport) and you want it to be different.

      If this is an issue with all recipients in the same domain, then
      you have put that domain in the wrong domain list (and recipient
      list as outlined in the next paragraph).
