This needs to be fixed soon since

GDAL | GRASS | remotesensing.org | QGIS are affected with
their Web sites/Wiki etc.

I hope that the messages are queued locally and not lost
(registration emails and cronjob notifications).

I would like to help but postfix isn't really my domain...
One observation: in /etc/postfix/main.cf I see

inet_interfaces = localhost

but it might be
inet_interfaces = localhost
inet_interfaces = $myhostname, localhost
