Problem with Open Webmail on Raq4

Runing Cobalt Raq4 server, I installed the OpenWebmail 1.81 package.

Everything is working fine except the "Auto Reply" feature every user can define.

Actually, I made some test and here are the results:

If I defined a user "test" on my Cobalt system, open OpenWebmail, activate Auto Reply feature and send an email to test@mydomain.com, I effectively get a replay message.

But if I defined a user "test_mbx", define "test" as email alias, the the Auto Reply feature does NOT work. To get it working using this config, I would need to send my email to "test_mbx@mydomain.com".

Am I doing something wrong here or is t a known problem (maybe fixed with a new release?

I've never used Open Webmail, but some othe packages that I have used work in a similar fashion and will only auto reply if the message is "To" the user. The intent is to keep from auto replying to spam, mail lists, or notices from an alias expansion, which is a good thing. For example you would not want to generate an auto reply if you are listed as being one of the recipients for root's mail. Open Webmail may be taking a similar approach.
