issue with aliases

I just set up a mail server with exim4 and courier imap.  I'm using exim4-heavy.  Everything is working as it should except aliases.  I have all of the aliases added to my /etc/aliases file.  However, when I try to send mail to an alias I get the following ndr (Note: I sent the test message from my imap client on our local network.  I am able to send and receive all other email from this client):

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its

I have double checked the MX records on our network and all of them point to the Debian server running exim.

Any advice on how to fix this would be appreciated.
