Instead of parsing the rule file for the notice to: setting, it tries to literally send e-mail to the filename.
With MS 4.78.9-1 it gave me:
<%rules-dir@/> (expanded from <%rules-dir%/>): bad address syntax
after updating to 4.78.15-1 it gave me:
</etc/mailscanner/rules/ at fqdn> (expanded from </etc/MailScanner/rules/>): unknown user: /etc/mailscanner/rules/"
I have(/had) it set up so each domain has a different postmaster.
The system is FC11 which is fully patched, made it live a few hours ago.
Any suggestions on what I could have messed up or if its an actual problem with MS ?

looks like you've got an @ in the rules path rather than a %.

Thats what postfix makes of it to get a 'valid' e-mail adres.
the .conf has: Notices To = %rules-dir%/
