    just set

    mydestination =

    you may way want

    mydestination = localhost, localhost.$mydomain
    local_recipient_maps = $alias_maps

    so that you can use aliases to execute scripts if necessary.

    then reject mail coming to *@localhost.$mydomain in
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions if you are concerned about spam to these
    domains.

    # postconf -e "mydestination="
