I've noticed that in my setup legitimate emails get a higher spam score due to:

    FORGED_RECIPIENTS(2.00)[username at isp.tld,jef at home.lan];

I suspect that's because of my fake domain name? How can I avoid this?

The original recipient of the email is indeed username at isp.tld. After retrieving 
it with fetchmail from the mailbox at my ISP, it is delivered to my local 
mailserver as jef at home.lan:

Delivered-To: jef at home.lan
Received: from server.home.lan
	by server.home.lan with LMTP
	id xy6FBk1GiF4dWQAA4S2JrA
	(envelope-from <xxx at yyy.zz>)
	for <jef at home.lan>; Sat, 04 Apr 2020 10:33:17 +0200
Received: from server.home.lan (localhost [IPv6:::1])
	by server.home.lan (Postfix) with ESMTP id BAD522C7B
	for <jef at home.lan>; Sat,  4 Apr 2020 10:33:16 +0200 (CEST)
Received: from imap.isp.tld [xxx]
	by server.home.lan with IMAP (fetchmail-6.4.0.beta4)
	for <jef at home.lan> (single-drop); Sat, 04 Apr 2020 10:33:16 +0200 (CEST)

Do I need to whitelist my fake domain somehow to avoid this kind of problems?
