Hello,

Am Freitag, 22. März 2013 schrieb Patrick Shanahan:
/etc/postfix/main.cf had @_some-parameter_@ setting for every

After correcting "xxxxxxxx_directory =" settings per my Tumbleweed
machine, postfix appears working correctly.

This mess probably occurred on installing/upgrading postfix:
postfix-2.9.6-2.1.x86_64 Sun Mar 10 11:14:39 2013
but the rpm main.cf does not contain "@.............@".

This sounds like https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=796162
which should be fixed since some time.

I'd guess some older postfix package broke your main.cf. Nevertheless,
if you want to be really sure, uninstall postfix, move away /etc/postfix
and re-install the postfix package.
