Description of problem:
Several of the default aliases in /etc/aliases can cause mail to be delivered
locally instead of to the correct external address.  For instance, if the
external address begins with 'support' or 'sales'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try sending a mail to an address of the form 'support@...'
Actual results:
Mail is delivered locally

Expected results:
Mail should be delivered to the external address

This depends on the mail setup and /etc/aliases should stay as it currently is.
