Unhappy postfix error

i don't know if this is the correct place for this, but i am desprate.

Suddenly my postfix server stopped delivering any of the mail it recieved. it just keeps getting deferred. main.cf and cyrus.conf looked fine, what config file should i be looking at. thanks!

Mar 18 05:14:32 localhost postfix/pipe[715]: 2C8209DC95: to=<user@domain.com>, orig_to=<user2@domain.com>, relay=cyrus, delay=75179, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: 421 4.3.0 deliver: empty option value on line 16 of configuration file_ )
