I think so.  The above only will work if both copies of the email arrive 
and are passed to mailpost within a matter of 1 second (or 2 seconds if 
alias2 arrives first).  Try passing something like 60 or even 300 
depending on how much latency there is in your mail server.

I've updated the documentation to reflect this better in the future.
