Here's my output from postconf -n

Problem is, anything that I had in my /usr/local/etc/postfix/aliases 
file that wasn't the standard root, bin, postmaster, etc won't work. I 
get the error Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local 
recipient table

I used the regular domain on the server for personal usage and had a lot 
of aliases in there for mail lists. Now non of the aliases work.
