Default Problems with Aliases and Forwards

Hello All,
I am having an issue with aliases and forwards where the messages are not being delivered. I have noticed two things.

First, when sending from one of the virtual accounts to an aliased account, Postfix does not recognize the account is on the box.

bob@example.com sends an email to alias@example.com (which is an alias). Instead of trying to deliver the mail locally, Postfix uses the relayhost we have setup.

Second, when I telnet to the mail server and send an email to alias@example.com, the mail server will accept it. However, it will deliver it to a mailbox named alias, not to bob's mailbox.

Here is the main.cf:

virtual_alias_domains =
virtual_alias_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_forwardings.cf, mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_email2email.cf
virtual_mailbox_domains = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_domains.cf
virtual_mailbox_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_mailboxes.cf

Here is testing the SQL select:
select destination from mail_forwarding where source='alias@example.com';
| destination |
| bob@example.com |
