Ok, finally found a part solution!!!

Seems other people have had this problem too.

In the maildrop README.postfix file, I found this:

Postfix, by default, will send messages to multiple recipients at a time.

Maildrop assumes that it will be receiving messages for one recipient at a

When postfix hands maildrop a message with multiple recipients, only the
first recipient receives the mail.

If maildrop is configured as a transport named "maildrop" in postfix
(which would be the normal way to do it), adding:

maildrop_destination_recipient_limit = 1

to /etc/postfix/ fixes this behaviour, and causes postfix to hand
messages one recipient at a time to maildrop.
Ok, so I added the "maildrop_destination_recipient_limit = 1" line to my postfix file.
Then reloaded postfix, tested by sending email with multiple recipients, and it didn't work.

So I tried something different, turning off content filtering (spam/virus filtering with clamav, spamassassin, via amavisd).
I did this by commenting out this line in

#content_filter = smtp-amavis:[]:10024
Then reloaded again, tested, and YAY it worked! It was correctly delivering to all recipients!!!

So, why I wonder does it not work when the "content_filter" is turned on?
Only when its off?

Thats the next thing I'll have to find out.
I can't leave the content-filter off, as its removes on average 500 spam and 10 virus emails every day!
