My crystal ball has one idea: You followed the instructions on the wiki page
(http://wiki.dovecot.org/LDA/Postfix), which results in Postfix calling
deliver with the full mail address of the recipient (cb at lim.nl in your
example), and you've set up Dovecot's user database to only recognise
usernames without domains (e.g., "cb").
This could explain the error you're seeing.
If the above is not the problem, please post your dovecot -n output,
your userdb configuration file (if seperate), and the relevant postfix
configuration settings (especially your master.cf transport definition).
