      It's MUA connections (MUA->MTA->target MTA)

      m> grep your logs for "from=<recipient@...>". if you see one, then

      and it's not bounce (queue ID is the same and no "message_queue_ID:
      sender delivery status notification: bounce_queue_ID" line for this

      And one more question about postfix DSN.
      Why in logs DSN's "from" is not "MAILER-DAEMON@bla-bla-bla"
      (it's "from=<>" too) like "From" field in DSN message?

      (Debian etch postfix 2.3.8-2+b1)
