Re: User names.

Hmmm ... I didn't know about this limit when I installed and used a
ten-character username and an eight or nine-character password.  When I log
in, I have to use the full username (alphenglor), and my home dir is
/home/alphenglor, but files owned by me are shown as alphengl.alphengl (I'm
not at a terminal with a mouse and can't paste an ls -l to be explicit, 
sorry).  I think that my password was truncated at eight characters, though,
as sometimes I would swear that I hit an extra key at the end but I can
still get in.

As far as mail aliases go, though, you can set up your MTA to do that;
/etc/aliases, I think.
