Question Temporary failure with postfix delivering to dovecot, suggestions to resolve this?

I am really stuck here can someone help me with this?

This is the error I am getting in maillog here:
Nov 16 15:02:05 server postfix/pipe[2034]: 1585243C61: to=<>, relay=dovecot, delay=1.3, delays=0.27/0.03/0/1, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure)
I am correct in assume its postfix handing over to dovecot is it? Is that where the error is occuring, I just haven't got a clue how to resolve this and appreciate any assistance with this, it's dovecot I am using for mysql based virtual users, though I am able to login and use all the services for mysqld etc.

Again any replies are much appreciated,
