Re: Strange Qmail problem...
IMHO it is not a wise idea to use alias as a normal user due to the fact
that it is a special user in the qmail architecture:
Mail to addresses on local domains that don't in fact exist, are delivered
via ~alias/.qmail-localpart where localpart@<domain_in_locals> is the
recipient of the mail, and the user 'localpart' does not exist.
Therefore don't use alias as a regular user or you will have surprises in
