Default postfix script execution in /etc/aliases fails

I followed the following virtual users and domains tutorial from how-to-forge:

All the features work correctly, however, when I put a script execution assignment in my /etc/aliases it attempts to send the email to a user with the command name, instead of executing the command.

For example, the following line in my /etc/aliases file:

testing: "|exec flist testing" (where flist is symbolically linked in /etc/smrsh)

Issues the following response in my /var/log/maillog:

to=<|exec flist>, orig_to=<>, relay=virtual, delay=0.26, delays=0.24/0.01/0/0.01, dsn=5.1.1, status=bounced (unknown user: "|exec flist")

Any help is greatly appreciated.
