Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I hate to keep harping on the same point, but do you have any error messages or log entries to show us when you try to send email to alias x (which then goes to firstname.lastname@example.org)? If you don't have any log entries, then you should probably set some higher logging levels.
How about something other than hotmail? Give another external mail server a try, maybe yahoo or eudoramail.com See if it's just the mail service that doesn't like what you are doing rather than a problem on your end.
So basically what you are saying is it just doesn't work with hotmail. You might try looking at your setup then. If you've got a dynamic IP some ISP's reject you. If you are not from a 'known' IP, they reject you. If you are relaying through another DNS, sometimes you get rejected that way too (it might appear to have come from your ISP, but it's altered since it actually came from you but your ISP sported the DNS lookup, sometimes you just can't over come that one without a buddy at the ISP ).
