Hmm, if i do "emacs -nw -Q", and then "M-x message-mail", then I see:

    Parsing /home/soft1/miles/.mailrc... done

It then expands aliases if i do TAB or SPC (TAB always seems to work,
but SPC only works if abbrev-mode is enabled ... which it is by default).

[Oddly, if I do "M-x mail" instead (invoking mail-mode), it _doesn't_
expand aliases...]
