      Wietse,

      Thanks much for pointing this out.
      It turned out that the problem was caused by:

      postfix/local[29798]: fatal: main.cf configuration error:
      mailbox_size_limit is smaller than message_size_limit

      My bad.

      Many thanks for your support and the great work on postfix!

      Tobi
