Easier method of specifying email aliases
While the current mechanism for specifying email aliases is very flexible, I managed to mess things up while creating some aliases by mistyping the local address in the aliases file.
Other hosting platforms allow you to define aliases for a mailbox, I was wondering if this might be a good addition to symbiosis.
I'd suggest adding an 'aliases' file in the Mailbox directory (where the password file is currently) that just contains a list of aliases for that mailbox.

I think this will be difficult to implement without a cron-job, so at the moment.
Exim would have to check every mailbox on a system to see if any aliases were defined for that mailbox, for each message that has been delivered.
Or there'd be a cron that would build up an aliases list from these settings that exim could use.
Or I guess exim4 could call a command each time to do this lookup..
As such, I'm not going to put this in jessie but maybe we'll consider this at a later date.
