show the output of postconf -n,
$ postconf -n | grep alias_maps
should give you something like
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
Edit the file that's mentioned here (in this example case, it's
/etc/aliases), and add the following line:
It is possible that you specified this in a transport map as well
the output of ``postconf -n'' see if there's a ``transport_maps''
line and if there is, have a look at the file specified there.
More than likely however this is a simple addition to the aliases
Once you have added the above alias, run
(where /etc/aliases is the location of your aliases file).
