Please see error mails from your MTA. These are typical errors shown
in error mails returned from MTA's.

	error		origin
	unsafe		permission of files or directories

			/etc/aliases miss-configuration
			did not newaliases

*	You fails to use :include: form in /etc/aliases

The following reasons are possible:

	* "include" file exists in an insecure directory.
	  Please check the whole hierarchy permission from / to the "include".
	  check	/usr, /usr/local, /usr/local/fml, ... and chmod 755 them!

	* your mail system do not support include form.
	  You may require C-Wrapper (see below). 

If you fails to use :include: in /etc/aliases, please use the
C-wrapper program which may be required to be root-setuid.
The example of the C-wrapper is 


Please compile and set it properly. I recommend you council the
setting of the C-wrapper with the administrator of the
machine since it requires a lot of attention.

FYI: Some OS's provides a memo on installation. Please check your OS.
e.g.	Debian Linux	/usr/doc/fml/
