Hm. I don't recognize that error message. Could be either a bad config entry
in /etc/postfix/ or it could be AppArmor blocking it

Try running "rcsubdomain stop" and see if that helps

Otherwise, send the output of "postconf mailbox_transport". It should
say /var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp

Always test to see if everything is working before you start using it for
real. It's simple to set kmail to use this postfix as mail server, and
sending a mail to your own account. That way you will know if it works,
before you start using real email

should be fine, the important thing is that it's something postfix recognizes
as its own domain
