Hi Evan. You can do it the other way around with an "luser_relay", that
is deliver locally if the user exists otherwise send the mail elsewhere.
luser_relay is mentioned here: http://www.postfix.org/rewrite.html
Alternatively can can simply direct the users on a case by case basis as
William suggests. My preference in this case would be to use the virtual
Another option is to have Postfix do an LDAP lookup to see what to do with
luser_relay is nice because it is low maintenance. If the user doesn't
exist locally send it off to another box to deal with.
Beware of becoming a source of "backscatter" spam though. Any MTA which
accepts mail for the domain needs to reject mail to non-existant
recipients in the domain or it can be a source of backscatter.
