Forwarding email from root

I am using Fedora 15 as a media server. As such, I do not log into the box and check to see if are any emails to root reporting errors with the system. I would like root's email forwarded to my normal email. I modified the last line of /etc/aliases to have

root: root

or

root: me@mydomain.com

where mydomain.com is hosted at google. After modifying the /etc/aliases I run newaliases and /etc/init.d/sendmail restart.

I have setup root's .mailrc file so that the following works.

echo "howdy" | mail me@mydomain.com

I also tried with and without a .forward file containing me@mydomain.com. When I try

echo "howdy" | mail -v root

I get the following error.

>>> MAIL FROM:<me@mydomain.com>
250 2.1.0 OK m30sm49334329yhe.15
>>> RCPT TO:<root>

What step did I miss?

Thanks
