There are a few reasons for this. The SPAM filter is valid. I had a similar 
problem with majordomo. All email to my recipients at bellsouth.net were 
being bounced and unknown user. When I moved the list over to mailman 
(and Postfix) the problem was eliminated. 

Another possibility, is that the postfix binaries on Red Hat 7.1 are 
broken. There is a FAQ on it. I would suggest that you build postfix from 

Also, postfix itself has some aggressive SPAM filters. I found several of 
my users were not receiving email because of this. We ended up relaxing 
the SPAM filters. (I don't think that this is your problem though).
