Mail aliases are alternative addresses to existing mailboxes on the same domain name. They can be used to send and receive mail, but incoming messages will arrive to the primary mailbox. Other than this, they behave as independent mailboxes. For instance, to forward mail that is sent to an alias and to its primary mailbox, you need to create two separate forwards.
