I propose one of three solutions -

a) amend /etc/postfix/main.cf:

[default at install time]
inet_interfaces = localhost
inet_protocols = all

[new settings]
inet_interfaces = localhost
inet_protocols = ipv4

b) Remove the line with '::1' from /etc/hosts.

c) re-enable IPv6


That's all there is to it.
I restored all settings to default.
I restarted the network with ipv6 enabled
I uncommented the ::1 from /etc/host as it is default

no rootmail

Should I raise a bug?
Here are some things you might want to check and ask yourself:

1.)  Does the box process ANY mail?  If so, it's not networking or address
resolution and probably not a gross issue with postfix configuration.  Go back
to the basics.

2.) Have you checked file /etc/aliases for lines that looks something like this:

# It is probably best to not work as user root and redirect all
# email to "root" to the address of a HUMAN who deals with this
# system's problems. Then you don't have to check for important
# email too often on the root account.
# The "\root" will make sure that email is also delivered to the
# root-account, but also forwared to the user "joe".
root:          joe, \root

That file is used for just about any MTA you can think of.  if the root: line
is commented, mail won't be forwarded.  Uncomment it and run newaliases.

3.)  If you open a pair of terminal sessions and use a command line program like mail to send an email, while tailing the mail log file, what does postfix say is going on with that message?
