Sendmail + /etc/aliases = Unprivlieged User mail

When I use an alias in /etc/aliases the mail arrives from "Unprivileged User", but when I take the alias out of /etc/aliases it arrives correctly. I'm stumped.

If you posted your alias file and anything else that might help like configurations files, etc, it would probably result in better replies.
