not getting emails for root

Hi, installed virtualmin on new server/debian 8

All good, I can send and recive emails from virtual server email/user

But not from root

I think usermin not works with root right?

but still i tried from shell and no go

What alias should I have for root

root@ns1:~# cat /etc/aliases


mailer-daemon: postmaster
postmaster: root
nobody: root
hostmaster: root
usenet: root
news: root
webmaster: root
www: root
ftp: root
abuse: root
noc: root
security: root
root: user
clamav: root /var/virtualmin-traps/spam/14496556897802 /var/virtualmin-traps/ham/14496556897802


I found root emails under /home/user/Maildir

whys that ?

can I safely passwd user? so I can login in usermin ?
