The aliases.db file is updated from the aliases file by the command
The list creation process that added these aliases to the data/aliases
file should run the postalias command defined as POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD in
Defaults.py/mm_cfg.py (default is /usr/sbin/postalias) to update the
aliases.db. Perhaps this failed for some reason.
Another possibility is that Postfix's main.cf doesn't reference
data/aliases in alias_maps.
