Default Postfix/Courier/MySQL: Local Delivery Fails

I've just semi-successfully completed the courier/postfix/mysql/sasl howto at http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_po..._quota_courier, but now, for some reason, mail sent to a local address, as opposed to a virtual user address, fails. Any email sent to a virtual user found in the MySQL tables works perfectly, but mail is not delivered to local accounts.

Here's the output of my /var/log/mail.log when I send an email to a local account:

There are no errors reported in /var/log/mail.errr, so I'm confused as to why this mail is never delivered to my local $USER/Maildir/.

Happy to supply any further needed information, thanks in advance.

Invisihosting isn't in my virtual list, it's the main domain of the box, but I figured out hte problem. I had akira.invisihosting.com.com in hte mydestination line, and the extra .com borked it all. I removed that, voila, it works.

Thanks though!
