I'm no expert but this sounds like what was happening to me when I upgraded
to a new version of vpopmail that handled aliased domains differently.

One of the vpopmail readme files describes the issue of the change in how
domain aliases were handled, but without explaining the underlying mechanics
fully, so I had to post here to find out.

Here is the message I posted about my problem, and the response I got:

I believe I edited the assign file and fixed the problem.
