1) While in Mail Tool
   Select Edit -> Properties -> Alias and then define your alias.
   I've tried this, it work perfectly. I'm yet to try other method.

2) Look at the manpages:
        aliases, addresses, forward (5) - addresses and aliases for sendmail
        newaliases (8) - rebuild the data base for the mail aliases

3) I also get a script file to insert a front end to sendmail to pick up
   special addresses. Write to me personnally to get that.

4) You can define aliases in .mailrc (if you are using sendmail) or in
   /etc/aliases. See man sendmail.

Thanks a million for the reply (Juergen Peus)
