Default got a problem with a email account

hi all

i have got this email account on my server and its setup like this :

sales@example.com salesuser

but theres a alias in postfix called sales that goes to postmaster then goes to root and for some reason its messing up the email, anything going to sales@example.com goes to root not salesuser which it is set has. But once i change the alias from postmaster to the salesuser then it works. I have tried deleting the alias but its seem like its fixed to that account and after deleting the alias the email fail to send from hotmail. Then i put the alias back in again and set to root , email for sales@example.com goes to root then i change the alias to salesuser and it starts woking any idea why this is happening
