Postfix w/ mysql backup


I have a postfix server that uses mysql for it's lookups. It occasionally occurs that the mysql database becomes unavailable. When this happens I need mail going to 2 specific external domains to be delivered anyway.

Trouble is postfix dies when it tries to lookup the local domains.

I tried using transport, but it checks local domains first.
