How do you know this? Is the list visible in the web UI? In

It may, but I can't say with the information I have. I'd need to see
'postconf -n' but I don't think that's necessary. I think the issue is
the aliases were never created because of the error in the create CGI.

Do you have

add_virtualhost('www.theglobalvoice.info', 'theglobalvoice.info')

or perhaps the equivalent

DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.theglobalvoice.info'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'theglobalvoice.info'

followed by

in mm_cfg.py.

Please answer this specific question and also the other specific
questions I asked in my reply at
