I have a 10.2 box running as a postfix mail gateway for a couple of
domains I have. This box is running spamassassin, maia mailguard and
clamav. Local mail is disabled on this machine. I've setup postfix so
myhostname =
relay_domains =
mydomain =
relayhost =

Addresses in Postfix are qualified with the value of $myorigin, and the default value of $myorigin is $myhostname:

# postconf -d myorigin
myorigin = $myhostname

postconf -e "myorigin = $mydomain"
postfix reload

should solve your problem.

The transport file has smtp:[w.x.y.z] smtp:[w.x.y.z]

The virtual file has
root me@xxxxxxxxxx
vscan me@xxxxxxxxxx

Don't do that! do not use unqualified addresses in virtual. Because virtual is applied to ALL mails (also outgoing mails) any mail sent to root@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx will be rewritten to me@xxxxxxxxxx!

Second, in the log files I see the following:
Jan 21 19:00:11 mail postfix/cleanup[22582]: D4BE62078D:
Jan 21 19:00:11 mail postfix/bounce[22585]: D07832078F: sender
non-delivery notification: D4BE62078D
Jan 21 19:00:11 mail postfix/qmgr[5929]: D4BE62078D: from=<>,
size=2674, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Jan 21 19:00:13 mail postfix/smtp[22586]: D4BE62078D:
to=<me@xxxxxxxxxx>, orig_to=<vscan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>,
relay=[]:25, delay=1.2, delays=0.01/0/0.18/1, dsn=2.0.0,
status=sent (250 2.0.0 l0M00Cju028485 Message accepted for delivery)
Jan 21 19:00:13 mail postfix/qmgr[5929]: D4BE62078D: removed

Why is it trying to send this message to me@xxxxxxxxxx through the
relay server when it knows (via transport file) that this
domain should be sent to w.x.y.z?

I've done this same setup on a 10.1 box previously and it is working
just fine. Any ideas what I'm missing? I'm just confused.

Can't help you here with incomplete und obfuscated data.
