So I am not getting the emails that various functions send me
I have added a line
in /etc/aliases, and ran newaliases (which truncates the mailman aliases filename in the final :include: line by trimming the last s and then complains about the name being illegal).
So I have several messages intended for gene@FQDN that are stuck in /var/spool/clientmqueue.
Some have a line that they were refused by 127.0.0.1 if that is a useful clue.
I have tried sending mail to myself, and while its sent quickly enough, it never arrives, not even in /var/spool/clientmqueue
Here is a paste of the last one from the user amanda:

Can anyone detect what I need to do here?
