    Hi sph33r,
    To honest it would be better to set yourself up to get all the "root" mail or at least the odd stuff like webmaster or admin...that way you would be certain to get all the mail. Just in case something important was sent!
    I don't think deleteing aliases would hurt but why take the risk when its just as easy to forward everything to your email address!

    Yes, comment out those lines or delete them, then run
    Code:
    newaliases
    But as willebanks said, it's better to keep those entries and forward the mails to one of your email accounts so that you see when something is wrong.
