Seeing how postfix could not access  /etc/aliases I tried loosening
the permissions, but still no luck:

[root at mercury ~]# chmod +rx /etc/aliases
[root at mercury ~]# newaliases
[root at mercury ~]# ls -l /etc/aliases
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1512 Apr 25  2005 /etc/aliases
[root at mercury ~]# service postfix status
master (pid 12412) is running...
[root at mercury ~]# service postfix restart
Shutting down postfix:                                     [  OK  ]
