As late as I've gotten to this reply, yoou've probably already solved your porblem; however, if not here is a quick fix under SuSE.

Yast> Network Services> Mail Transfer Agent> Aliases>
set USER@xxxxxxx there is USER(local) here. Of course this is an abstraction os what Yast will write for you in the appropriate config files. Postfix, aliases, etc.

The problem is that postfix is unaware of your local address and is therefor trying to find it online. If you don't fix this in a timely manner, less than friendly sys admins might blacklist your ip from their servers in order to avoid your bounces :/

I hope this helps,
