Well, right now the name of the pop3 user name make no sense. If there is a
"joe23" pop3 user and he wants johny@foo and joetheone@bar emails, I create
different aliases in the different alias tables (foo,bar). If joe23 alias is
not added, he get no mail as joe23. Because of this there is no domains
needed for authentication.

Do you think I could use a same system?
