problems setting up a list

I'm setting up a BSD server from scratch and have come to the stage where I
want to set up some mailing lists.  Rather than using the /etc/mail/aliases
file to list the recipients of each list, I want to use the include system.
So, as such, I have the following line in my aliases file:


and the support file contains:


(userx being real users on the system).

I then do a make aliases.  If I then try and send mail to the support at server
address, I get the following bounced message:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
    (reason: can't create (user) output file)
    (expanded from: <support at>)

I'm pretty sure I'm doing something very silly, but I don't know what!!
