It's not the Sender: header. If it refused your message at RCPT TO,
it didn't even see the body yet. I bet postfix used an invalid MAIL FROM.
Make sure your machine has a valid, existing domain name
or that postfix is configured to use a valid, existing domain
name as its primary domain (in exim, that's primary_hostname/
qualify_domain - I don't know the postfix equivalent).
