Postfix status=SOFTBOUNCE unknown user:*

Hi LQ!
I have many users and many domains allowed to relay post to my smtpd.
I use postfix and i have listed thos users and domains in appropriate directives like:
relay_domains = hash:/etc/postfix/relay_domains OK
virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable user@domain localuser
check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/client_access.txt user@domain PERMIT
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases only localusers in the form root:user

That's what my logs say of some users listed but gone bounced:

postfix/local[24385]: B1FB410070: to=<>, relay=local, delay=50429, delays=50428/0.59/0/0.07, dsn=4.1.1, status=SOFTBOUNCE (unknown user: "elisa")
It only happens for some users listed in the various lists not all of them and that's leave me a little surprised. Am i using the wrong directives for the lists ? What other maps postfix uses to allow access to some specified internet users ?
Thanks !
