Problem is no one is getting the mail.  I sent myself a test message from
the local lan and no mail showed up in the user mailbox on their desktop
which is OL2003.

The "status=sent" part of the second line indicates that Postfix has
delivered the message; in this case "sent" => successful delivery.

Having it removed from the queue after delivery is pretty normal. ;)
