Postfix will try to deliver $mydestination locally.

So if email is sent to a list subscriber labelled as
johndoe at mydomain.com and mydomain.com is in $mydestination, then it
doesn't matter what the DNS says. Postfix will attempt local delivery.

So you really need $mydestination to only be a subdomain of $mydomain,
and then stop/start Postfix.

If this is not the problem, please enlighten me.
