Hm. While mail got to the right place, our internal aliases still referred to caliburn...

I've changed all references to excalibur, but that does mean 'postmaster', 'hostmaster', 'webmaster' and 'noc' will all be delivered locally. This does appear to be the way it was set up before, but I'll see if there's a better way...
