Queue full of double-bounce

Recently I've noticed that my mailqueue is filled up with doube-bounce
messages that won't go away.
I can't remember it being this way since the beginning and I just
noticed it a couple of days ago.

Right now I have 193 messages in the queue and they're all from
They are only in the queue for the time specified in
maximal_queue_lifetime that I have set to 3 days.
Before it was 5 days and then I had over 1000 messages in the queue..

If I do a postcat on a message I get this:

*** ENVELOPE RECORDS /var/spool/postfix/active/6322B10A46C ***

Can't really see why it gets stuck in the queue.
Anyone know why it acts like this?

I've attached my postconf -n.
Tell me if you need more information.
