Sometimes people are off line for long periods, in this case from Aug 5
to now. Be patient.

So yugi.us is a virtual alias domain. This means EVERY address @yugi.us
must have a virtual alias mapping

So you need a virtual alias mapping, perhaps something like

myemailaddress at yugi.us  myemailaddress at localhost

and similarly for every other xxx at yugi.us address, or perhaps you really
want yugi.us to be a local rather than a virtual domain.
