postfix-users: Default transport

Default transport

Hi,

I'm wondering if it's smart to set a "default transport" like this "*@*"
to "smtp:[mail.server.com]" so I don't have to specify for every domain
that I have on the server, and would just have to specify for those who
need a different transport?

I have a smtp-server that checks for spam etc. and then relays it to
either my internal pop3/imap-server or an external pop3/imap-server of
their own.
So I want my internal pop3/imap-server as "default transport", but I'm
wondering if that opens up some kind of security risk or something?
Like even if the domain doesn't exist on my server, it asks the default
transport if the user exists and doesn't reject it like it would use to!?

Thanks,
