Topic: postfix alias table

Hi,
it seems there is a small issue in Postix´s alias table (Lenny bug??).
root points to two addresses:
2nd is correct -> root: postmaster@example.com = created by iRedMail installation
1st is ? -> root: user-created-by-lenny-install   should be  user-created-by-lenny-install: root

run
# newaliases 

Sorry I haven´t check it before running iRedMail installation.

Re: postfix alias table

During the Lenny installation you will be asked for the name of an user (e.g. administrator) and its password.
After iRedmail install I got something like this
# vi /etc/postfix/aliases

mailer-daemon: postmaster
postmaster: root
nobody: root
hostmaster: root
usenet: root
news: root
webmaster: root
www: root
ftp: root
abuse: root
noc: root
security: root
root: administrator
clamav: root
root: postmaster@example.com
policyd: postmaster@example.com
amavis: root

# newaliases ->
postalias: warning: /etc/postfix/aliases.db: duplicate entry: "root"

Changing root: administrator to administrator: root resolves the problem.

iRedMail works with or without any changes like a charme but perhaps its possible that system messages not contact the postmaster@example.com.

This happens on a fresh installation, no changes made yet.
