Unhappy Postfix transport problems

I am setting up a postfix email server. Currently we have a windozs email server. We want to slowly move everyone to the new postfix server. Therefore, in the transport file I have put a list of users which are local to postfix server all other email address for that domain should be relayed to the windozs box.

Transport file smtp:localhost smtp:localhost smtp:[]

In the above example I want fredblogs and tomjones emails to go to postfix all other email should be relayed ro However, the above routing does'nt work. All, emails are sent to including fred blogs and tomjones

Can any one help?

The way you have it, postfix is likely ignoring it as if it honored it it would be a mail loop.

# man postfix

In order to deliver internal mail directly, while using a mail relay
for all other mail, specify a null entry for internal destinations (do
not change the delivery transport or the nexthop information) and
specify a wildcard for all other destinations.

my.domain :
.my.domain :
