Thanks for your help. The aliases are required because we have many 
lists. The .forward is no longer used in our setup because then the mail 
server depends on the NFS mounted home directory. Our old mailserver 
hung at this when it wanted to mount a nonexisting home directory.

But how can with your setup the pipe to command of the aliases file be used?
