OK, confixx rewrites the adresses to sort mails into the right

Whats in the main.cf for local_recipient_maps? I have

local_recipient_maps = $alias_maps proxy:unix:passwd.byname

alials_maps is set this way:

alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases,hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases

Is confixx rewriting the main.cf file also automaticly by its cronjob? 
If not, you could sent us the main.cf file (without comments) and / or 
the output of

postconf -n
