Yes. This list holds all domains for which you want to do these aliases.

for each domain in virtual_domains you need one aliases-style file to map
localparts (string in front of the @) from this domain to "real" email
for example, on my mail server:
> david@diode:~$ cat /etc/mail/aliases/black.co.at
> postmaster: david
> abuse: david
> david: firstname.lastname@example.org
I also have my virtual_domain list in a file:
> david@diode:~$ grep
> domainlist virtual_domains = lsearch*;/etc/mail/virtual-domains
You also want to go through the acl/ section and add the virtual_host list to
all "domain=" tests which test for local_domains.
