Exclamation Can't receive email for aliases

I have setup a website at www.xyz.com (not the real domain name) and I have created a user account for scott@xyz.com

I can send and receive email for this account fine.

I created an email alias in ISPConfig for smb@xyz.com (typed "smb" into the email alias field).

I can't receive email for this alias, and when i attempt to send to smb@xyz.com, my email bounces back with:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:


Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 9): 550 <smb@www.xyz.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table
I checked my /etc/postfix/virtusertable file and I don't see "smb" anywhere in it. I assume this is where its supposed to be?

What i do see for xyz.com is:
scott@www.xyz.com    web6_scott
web6_scott@www.xyz.com    web6_scott
scott@xyz.com    web6_scott
web6_scott@xyz.com    web6_scott
but no mention of my aliases. When I edit the record in ISPConfig, it does show "smb" in the Email Aliases field. What gives? Is it in another file?
