If you just want readable reports about postfix logs, you can use pflogsum.

If you need to use mysql, you can store a copy of postfix logs in mysql, for example using rsyslog, then set up a web interface to look at them.

You might be interested in mysqmail-postfix-logger. From the description this may exactly do as a BI-unit may like to see.

MySQMail is a set of tiny daemon loggers for mail and FTP servers that save traffic information in a MySQL database. The information is split by domain and by user so that it's easy to measure all the traffic for a given domain name in real time.

This package provides a logger for SMTP traffic handled by Postfix.
