I know I was missing something simple ;)
Once I change $mydestination to fedora.x.x.x, all works fine. :)
Thanks :)

Yes, read this documentation :-)


It looks like what is happening is that the two addresses that are
failing are being interpreted by postfix as being local, which you claim
they are not (I assume because local == fedora.x.x.x and non-local ==

Postfix by default won't attempt delivery to local users that don't
exist (that would be pretty pointless wouldn't it?).

So how does postfix determine who is local? It matches the domain in the
email address against $mydestination or the IP addresses in
$inet_interfaces or $proxy_interfaces. I suspect one of these is not
properly configured in /etc/postfix/main.cf.
