Rebuild the map?  ("makemap" or equivalent)

(Sendmail's my poison, but the problem description pattern-matches to a
common problem there; "I've defined the damn alias!" + "it's still not
working" =99%=> "you didn't run makemap, so it has no idea that it changed")

"it's the little things that kill"
