Root emails going to user nobody

    Not sure what I've done, but for some reason all emails send to user root (like system messages), are going to user nobody.

    The /etc/aliases looks like this:
    # /etc/aliases
    mailer-daemon: postmaster
    postmaster: root
    nobody: root
    hostmaster: root
    usenet: root
    news: root
    webmaster: root
    www: root
    ftp: root
    abuse: root
    noc: root
    security: root
    root: root
    I've done a /etc/init.d/postfix restart

    Still, same problem.. System emails messages to root are going to user nobody :/

    Anyone here who might know what is going on here?

    I guess root: root can not be done.
    a root: web1_info is okay.... That is... If I do a /etc newaliases <<< I forgot to do this all the time when I tested all combinations :-/

    All is working fine now.
