smtpd_recipient_restrictions has reject_unlisted_recipient so it does not 
accept your new alias.  You can remove that restriction if you like,
check the instructions in the email-split howto.

Currently I do not remember precisely if aliases actually work as Kolab's 
postfix does not use local delivery, but kollabmailboxfilter.
You can alternatively use the "virtual" setting for alias functionality.
