Open up YaST. Choose Network Services and then Mail Transfer Agent.

The first window you'll see will be "General Settings". Simply click the
Next button. The next window will be "Outgoing Mail". Again, click Next.
The next window will be "Incoming Mail". This is the window you want.
Down near the bottom, you will see a text box labeled, "Forward root's
mail to". Simply delete the user name in that box and click the Finish
button. That should do it.
