I had to change the line in /etc/postfix/ with "alias_maps ="

FWIW, my /etc/postfix/ already has the "alias_maps =
hash:/etc/aliases". I've never edited the file, so I suppose YaST put it
there. I don't remember what version of openSUSE was first installed.

This is Tumbleweed on a Raspberry Pi 1B, which is a text mode system. No YaST
or Desktop.

However postfix uses /etc/password to deliver email for root. Also for other
users in that file, even when they do not have an entry in /etc/aliases.
