is there a user on the server with the same name as the alias? even if the
user is configured at a different domain name, this could cause problems.

For example, if this is your setup:

mydomain1.com ->

username: harry
alias: info

mydomain2.co.uk ->

username: info

as far as i know, all emails sent to 'harry' using the address
info@xxxxxxxxxxxxx will go to the user 'info' on mydomain2.co.uk

Hope this makes sense! Correct me someone if I'm wrong!
