I want to use mysql with postfix as so:

Using MySQL tables

Once Postfix is built with mysql support, you can specify a map type in like this:

    alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/

The file /etc/postfix/ specifies lots of information 
telling Postfix how to reference the mysql database. For a complete 
description, see the mysql_table(5) manual page.

what I have installed is:

postfix-mysql  dovecot-postfix  postfix

does this mean that I can use mysql for postfix transports?  When the 
package page 
says "map support" do they mean transports, or are these two different 
things (maps versus transports for postfix)?
