Postfix as it ships with mandrake 7.0 is broken. Last time I looked
there was nothing on the website aobut it. Just checked again, still
nothing. Try creating a symlink between /etc/aliases.db and
/etc/postfix/aliases.db It's supposed to fix it, but I've a feeling
that it only works for local mail so YMMV. (Also, that fix is from
memory so I could be wrong :) but I don't think so).
