The log snippet clearly shows that it is fetchmail generating the
message. For some reason, it cannot connect to the localhost IPv6
address for delivery via SMTP.

I believe the solution is either  (a) to fix your fetchmail conf, or
(b) to have postfix listen on IPv6 addresses.

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0. at ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
