Default Problem with 'CC' & 'BCC' email not being delivered.

Hi,

I've got a problem with my mail server in that any 'CC' or 'BCC' email is not being delivered.

The sever is running virtual mail setup with:
- Debian Sarge
- 2.4.27 smp kernel
- courier 0.47-4 courier-pop, courier-imap, courier-authmysql
- postfix 2.1.5-0 postfix-mysql, postfix-tls
- maildrop 1.6.3, maildropmysql
- spamassassin
- clamav 0.88.2
- amavisd

Basically, if someone sends an email (from anywhere) to an email address on my server, and also CC or BCC an email address on my server, it gets delivered to the person in "To:", but not to "CC" and "BCC.

Eg: Consider the following 3 people
- PersonA with an external address: persona@gmail.com
- PersonB with address on my server: a@myserver.co.nz
- PersonC with address on my server: b@myserver.co.nz

Suppose PersonA sends the following email:
To: a@myserver.co.nz
CC: b@myserver.co.nz
Subject: foobar
Message: test

a@myserver.co.nz receives the email successfully in their inbox.
However b@myserver.co.nz doesn't, nothing arrives, seems the CC email disapears.

I get the following extract in my mail log:
Code:

Its the same with CC and BCC emails, and the same if the sender address is from an external address, or an internal address on my server.

Anyone experienced this, or something similar where CC/BCC emails don't get delivered?

One thing to note, is that if an email like the following is sent (internal user sends to external user, and CC's to internal user), then it works fine:
From: a@myserver.co.nz
To: persona@gmail.com
CC: b@myserver.co.nz
Subject: foobar
