a temporary failure

dear all

I have a postfix relaying to dovecot's lda but "strangely" 
it does not work, I mean I imaging it's me doing something 
wrong, yet I cannot figure out what.

postfix logs:

to=<me at my.domain>,orig_to=<root at localhost>, relay=dovecot, 
delay=39296, delays=39294/2.2/0/0.27, dsn=4.3.0, 
status=deferred (temporary failure)

and dovecot logs no error, despite having debug to yes in 
couple of places,
it shows:

auth: Debug: master in: USER    1    me at my.domain    service=lda
auth-worker(25343): Debug: passwd(me at my.domain): lookup
auth-worker(25343): passwd(me at my.domain): unknown user
auth: Debug: ldap(me at my.domain): user search: 
base=ou=People,dc=my,dc=domain scope=subtree 
filter=(&(objectClass=person)(uid=me)) fields=
auth: Debug: ldap(me at my.domain): result: 

... here  goes the whole lot of ldap atrribs, and at the end:


For passdb & userdb in the configs I only configure ldap 
backed, nothing else. Ldap works, I can query it without 
I believe it's very simple set up but I must be wrong somewhere.

pass_filter = (&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=%n))
pass_attrs = uid=user=%n,userPassword=password

user_attrs = 
user_filter = (&(objectClass=person)(uid=%n))

Any suggestions very appreciated.
