However postfix uses /etc/password to deliver email for root. Also
for other users in that file, even when they do not have an entry in

Is this the case also for leap?

Yes. Mails are delivered locally to local users, and they are defined
in /etc/passwd. (there are other ways, but this is the vanilla

Because in my system I have my users in etc/password that look alike
the others. Could you, in the latter case post here a sample entry of
etc password of a user that receives rootmail?

# grep root /etc/passwd

/etc/passwd says nothing about mail processing though.

If you want mail to root sent to another user, you amend /etc/aliases
with e.g.:

root: per, \root

# grep per /etc/passwd
per:x:1000:100:Per Jessen:/home/per:/bin/bash

I still do not have this fixed (although the patch I installed for
filtering mail has stopped system crashes and 99% of filter issues, so
I guess soon I can give feedback to my bug as solved..)

Is this still the issue of root not receiving mails sent to root? You
said you went with my proposal #3 and re-enabled IPv6 - what happened
after that? Were you or were you not able to send an email to root?
