This problem is still happening.
Had a couple more today.

Mar  2 09:21:31 proxy2 postfix/qmgr[6368]: CABEE2B06D9:
from=<someuser at>, size=289109, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Mar  2 09:21:31 proxy2 postfix/qmgr[6368]: CABEE2B06D9:
to=<someuser at>, relay=none, delay=2.9,
delays=2.9/0.01/0/0, dsn=4.3.2, status=def

So postfix sees only one recipient.
The headers still show three though:

From: "Some, User" <someuser at>
To: "Some, User2 \(Aus.\)" <some.user2 at>,
     <some.user3 at>,
     "Some, User4" <some.user4 at>

The only user to get the message was the user without a real name
So I guess the problem is obviously not MailScanner, because postfix is
only seeing one recipient.
I have found out today that this is happening from more than one source
company, so I doubt it's a problem with the source server, although they
are both probably exchange.
