    no. How else is postfix going to deliver to _local_ users?

When uncommented I can see in logs that although deliver is using - local
is used somewhere. Can anyone explain how it works and why postfix/local
is needed? Logs with uncomended local:

    postfix/local is the local handoff, hence its name.
