[please don't top post]
OK, your log shows the bad address leaving postfix. How did
it get in?
Your main.cf snipping looks odd, but could just be a cut+paste
artifact. Did you verify your settings by examining "postconf
-n" output? Typos can be hard to spot eyeballing main.cf entries.
Note that smtpd_* restrictions are only effective on mail
submitted via SMTP and logged by the postfix "smtpd" daemon.
Messages submitted locally via the command line are not
affected; these are logged by the postfix "pickup" daemon.
If the mail enters via SMTP, stop here and find out why your
table didn't work.
If the mail entered via the postfix "pickup" daemon, it's
possible to tell postfix to discard these messages instead of
delivering them (assuming sufficiently recent postfix) by
adding a transport_maps entry for the bad user.
transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
bad_addressverizon.net discard:unauthorized recipient
But it's always better to stop the garbage from coming into
postfix in the first place rather than trying to stop it from
going out. So if the mail entered via "pickup", the better
approach is to find whatever is submitting it and fix it there.
