The telnet test suggests that the problem's down to your postfix. I've
not touched postfix for aeons, but
http://www.postfix.org/VIRTUAL_README.html#virtual_alias and/or 
http://www.postfix.org/faq.html#virtual_relay may be a good pointed for
fixing. (oh look, it's the first/second hit on a google search for
'"Relay access denied" postfix')
