Thanks.  Yes, I did run newlist.  So, I'm sure the aliases were echoed to my
screen.  It was about 2:00 am, though.  And, since I am new to all of this
(Postfix and mail servers in general), evidently I made the decision that I
was too tired and mistake prone to read up on where Postfix keeps its
aliases.  I didn't know if Postfix used /etc/aliases or not.  I have
/etc/aliases on my box.  But, I didn't know if that was left over from

All I did after running newlist was make myself a note to do copy the
aliases after I got some rest.
