When you ran the "newlist" command, it should have generated a list of
aliases, formatted exactly for the aliases file.  Did "newlist" generate
this output on your system?  If so, any particular reason why you
ignored it?  I'm not trying to be snide, I'm just wondering if there's
some way this step could be improved -- there are many many queries
every week with people who ignore the alias-creation step, and I'm
wondering why.  As far as I know, there's nothing in the output of
"newlist" that says alias-creation is optional. :-)
