I tried this and it works:  I can now post to the site list.

After updating transport.db and virtual.db, and before posting, I ran 
newaliases just in case, with the result that now I don't know whether 
that step was necessary.

I tried this too, creating a new alias for my catchall box after my 
first successful post.  A second post arrived with no trouble, and 
examining the .db files with postmap shows they are as they should be. 
So at any rate Plesk doesn't throw away data it finds in those files 
that it didn't put there.

Thanks for all your help!
