-**Adding mail aliases.** On rare occasionsafter you add a mail alias, the underlying mail software might not properly reload its alias tables. If that happensthen mail to a newly added alias may bounce. Removing the alias and adding it back may fix the error. If not, please contact us and we will fix this. This problem occurs only after a new alias is addedOnce an alias works, It will keep on workingPlease test every new mail alias by sending it mail from some outside mail service.+**Adding mail aliases.** When mail arrives for a nonexistent email addressand bounces back, the nonexistence of that email address is cached for up to three hours. Now suppose you add a new mail alias and that nonexistent email address becomes valid. Local mail to the new alias will workbut incoming mail arriving from the Internet for that alias will continue to bounce until the cache expires. This sequence is rare but can happenSimply wait until the cache expiresThe new mail alias will become valid in three hours or less.
  
 **Missing Webmin menu.** You should see two menu items near the top left of the Virtualmin screen, one called Webmin and another called Virtualmin. If you are affected by this bug, then those two items will instead be called Virtualmin and Dashboard, and some essential functionality will then be missing. If you observe this, please notify us and we can fix it very quickly. This bug only affects what you can do from within Virtualmin. It does not affect the underlying system, so your email and website, if they were working before, will continue working. **Missing Webmin menu.** You should see two menu items near the top left of the Virtualmin screen, one called Webmin and another called Virtualmin.
