Im not shure about what you want with domain-aliases. if you mean such thing
like a catch all address, then it shouldnt be to hard
to set it up so that u can have popboxes and forwarders on a domain_alias.

On my configuration i first have the directors for handlng the popboxes and
Afterwords, if no email matches there i have a directory like this
( i have a table in my mysqldb containing 2 rows, a domain_name and an
emailaddress as target)
and it matches every email that goes to this domain, and forwards it to the
emailaddress (but if there is a popbox or forward specified, the director
will not come so far)
