Thank you for this info, it did indeed help. I had a missing
virtusertable entry, a missing rinetd entry on the gateway, a
duplicate of one message in /var/spool/postfix/maildrop (copy from
defer/), and unwanted emails spewing from an old database system I
didn't know existed. Handed over the last one to the right person to
fix, and fixed the other ones myself. Things are looking much better,
although there might be a few more teething issues with the new server

The postfix in question is final delivery for local mailboxes, using
amavisd and clamd.
