Hm this sounds like it might be something to do with something.

grep 127\.0\.0\.1/8 /etc/postfix/* -R

to try to find where this is coming from, change it to 127.0.0.0/8 as 
suggested by the error, restart postfix.

This I have seen when a subprocess started by Postfix is dying.  Perhaps 
one of your series of mail filtering apps is dying.

Hm I bet one of your filter apps was meant to be listening on 
localhost:10025 but died

That it is a 450 means that it is not a fatal error and the mail should 
be tried again, not the immediate bounce you see.

Try finding and fixing the 127.0.0.1/8 problem, afterwards if it didn't 
help check with ps -Af that all your filtering programs are active.
