    I ran into an interesting problem this morning. There was a Solaris server that for some reason had stopped using the /etc/mail/aliases file for aliases. After a few minutes of investigation I realized that another sys-admin had replaced several of the sendmail binaries with the Postfix "postfix to sendmail" binary equivalents. This is not likely to be a common problem, but I thought it was interesting enough to list as a reason for why a "sendmail" would be ignoring it's aliases file.
