exim4 forward all local mail?

There doesn't seem to be anything quite this simple on the interweb, so here goes.

I want all of the local mail on my server simply forwarded to my from exim4 on Debian Etch.

I found the following:
> What I want to do when the switch is ready is to make it so that

> transport it uses merely sends all the mail elsewhere.

driver = smartuser
transport = elsewhere

with the transport

driver = smtp
hosts = "

I don't know how to implement it or even if it will do it.

Can someone post a working exim4.conf that does this?
