If your secondary is also configured as final destination
(mydestination in /etc/postfix/main.cf ) then postfix will try the
delivery to itself (the secondary), this is correct.
The simple solution is to shutdown postfix on your secondary to be sure you will
not have to deal with synchronization in the other way (from secondary
And start postfix when switching to secondary

local_transport = lmtp:unix:/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp
This is the best way to make delivery, on secondary, but on primary too.
If your imap's synchronization is working, your main problem now is
about configuring postfix.
