connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]: Connection refused (port 10024)
you probably have something like below your /etc/postfix/master.cf
127.0.0.1:10024 inet n - n - - smtpd

looks like its trying to deliver the mail there but nothing to pick it up, are you, or intend to, running something like amavisd????

if so make sure its installed and running. if you using antivirus it usually works like this.

postfix delivers to amavisd on port 10024
the antivirus checks it and delivers back to postfix on port 10025
postfix delivers it then to dovecot
