After some more time looking at the issue,
I think whats happening is I missing
some important lib/app that sends the info from
balsa's gui "To:" to postfix(or however that works).
But I could be wrong, To give you a better idea of
what I have, is this:
I constructed an LFS system starting with a blank dir, and then slowly
adding to it until it was bootable, and usable.
Now when it came time for a mail client I decided to try balsa
with postfix as the mta. Which at first seemed like a nightmare,
but really isn't that bad.
But back to the no recipients found, I tested out balsa and postfix yesterday
with a intrepid install on another box, and everything seems to be fine.
Which then leads me to believe that somewhere in my building of my lfs system
I missed some important library/header/something that make the
mechanism work with postfix(or so I think).
As a test I loaded alpine, and the result were good, "works like a charm"
sends/receives like there was no tomorrow.

Overall I think what I'm going to do is just use alpine/pine
on the lfs system, and balsa/postfix on the other box.
This way on the lfs system I don't have too many daemons running,
and I don't have to break my back trying to figure something out
that's way over
my head.(although I should of followed the instructions completely, instead of
leaving things out.)
But if its some simple xml/sgml/mime thing then I guess I have to give
it a go again,
but probably not the next few days(back hurts, time for a beer).
