Are you sure your /etc/aliases.db and /etc/aliases files have the same data?
"ls -l /etc/aliases*"
I know you ran newaliases, but it doesn't hurt to make sure the
changes "took". Look at the date stamp on those files.
Also, instead of grepping for "aliases" try grepping for just "alias"
and see what "allow_mail_to_commands" and "allow_mail_to_files" are
And finally, if you don't include the "-r <mail address>" in your mail
command, does it still not work? Have you tried other methods of
sending mail to your alias address? It's been awhile since I really
looked into the "mail" command, so I can't recall what "-r" means -
