Uh, that should have been:

kmail uses 'jim@xxxxxxxxxx'.

Can you post the result of postconf -n ?
That shows the actual configuration postfix uses.



OK, postconf -n reports:
mydestination =,, $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain
mydomain =
myhostname =
mynetworks_style = subnet
myorigin =
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_local_domain =
smtpd_sender_restrictions = hash:/etc/postfix/access
smtpd_tls_CApath = /etc/ssl/servercerts/CA/
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/servercerts/server.pem
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/servercerts/serverkey.pem
smtpd_tls_loglevel = 1
smtpd_tls_security_level = may
strict_8bitmime = yes
strict_rfc821_envelopes = no

Are you using username@ip.address format for the envelope sender address or the authentication user name ?
If its the sender address, then postfix doesnt care. If its the authentication user name, then you have to see if cyrus sasl is accepting this form since postfix simply passes authentication over to cyrus and if cyrus says its authentic, postfix allows relaying.
On the other hand if you are trying to receive mail for username@ip.address (recipient email address ), then AFAIK, postfix will not accept mail as it only accepts for the list in the mydestination (and relay_domains,virtual_domains).

BTW, Is there any particular reason why you are using cyrus sasl with dovecot imap ?
