My system seems to work differently than jgo's.

My system uses NetInfo by default, but if I uncomment the line in 
/etc/mail/sendmail.cf to use the file /etc/mail/aliases, it then uses BOTH 
NetInfo and /etc/mail/aliases.  Is this the expected behavior? (it doesn't seem 
to be the way it's working on jgo's system based on his posts)
