The professional upgrade and the professional are the same media. The
difference is the manuals. I don't know about postfix, but I do remember
that JABR could not get the Red Hat version working either. As far as
things like postfix go, it's not really SUSE. I think you might have the
same problem with other distros. 

In cases like that I generally just get the sources from the site and
build from that. For instance, I never use the SUSE RPM version of
Sylpheed Claws because it is lacking a feature I want, such as
integrated GPG. The RPMs are set up for what they think is the average
