I agree, in this case it's a bit strange.

But another server, where I redirect a few domains mail to that server, I have exactly the same problem.
Thought I can use/test my own server first, if it's fixed here I can fix it on my other server as well.

What instructions were you following when you set this up?

I've noticed that you have alitrix.nl listed as both a virtual alias and a virtual mailbox domain. This is a clear no no:

NEVER list a virtual MAILBOX domain name as a virtual ALIAS domain!

I'd follow this advice from Wietse
Quote:
Local files versus network databases

The examples in this text use table lookups from local files such as DBM or Berkeley DB. These are easy to debug with the postmap command:

Example: postmap -q info@example.com hash:/etc/postfix/virtual

See the documentation in LDAP_README, MYSQL_README and PGSQL_README for how to replace local files by databases. The reader is strongly advised to make the system work with local files before migrating to network databases, and to use the postmap command to verify that network database lookups produce the exact same results as local file lookup.

Example: postmap -q info@example.com ldap:/etc/postfix/virtual.cf
Make sure you read http://www.postfix.org/VIRTUAL_README.html before you do anything else.
