Some times one or two mails will be malformed, check the mailbox of that user in /var/spool/mail/username and delete the top most message.

This error persists for all users. I dont understand why it is not identifying the username . . . . .

Can anyone help me as the issue is turning to be critical

Now I found one more problem : My aliases are not working at all. How can I troubleshoot this. How will I know if postfix is using any allias and that it is using the same file I have specified.
