Getting aliases to work in GSuite is far more complicated than HmaiServer

The email aliases didn’t seem to be working. Test email after test email and…nothing. Then I found this: “To prevent clutter, Gmail doesn’t route messages that you send to your own alias to your inbox. You can find the message in Sent Mail or All Mail.

With HmailServer it becomes far simpler with distribution lists which are incredibly simple with HmailServer or even in Roundcube by individual users.
