Spam to these two recipients were passed on to Postfix:
<owner-digicolor-list at>
<scivac12 at>

To these recipients it was blocked.
<prefix0108 at>
<safe120 at>
<safe397 at>
<salino40 at>
<scrfced at>

Are you using per-recipient settings of any kind (LDAP, SQL, hash
lookup, etc)? If so, what is different between
owner-digicolor-list at and safe120 at (for
example). It does seem odd to me. My guess is that
owner-digicolor-list at and scivac12 at may
be listed in @spam_lovers_maps? You might send a spammy message (one
that will score over 4.5) to owner-digicolor-list at and
safe120 at with debugging turned up by placing the
sender in @debug_sender_maps:

@debug_sender_maps = ( [qw( debug at )] );
