What are the corresponding log entries from the Postfix log?

It is quite unconceivable that mail would be lost - more likely it would
be delivered twice. It looks like Postfix smtp went away (timed out, crashed)
and amavisd-new could not feed back its final SMTP response. The normal
MTA behaviour is to keep mail in the queue if it did not receive the 2xx
response.
