An alias is some name for another name.

If you want e.g. all mails to info@domain.com being received by joe@domain.com, create an alias info->joe.
This allows also the creation of so called Catchall accounts. This means no matter which username is on the left side of the @, all mail will be directed to 1 user. This is done by defining *-> joe in aliases.tab.

The same can be done to domain names, e.g. domain.org->domain.com

Custom domain processing is explained well in the manual:

QUOTE

CUSTOM DOMAIN MAIL PROCESSING

    If a message that has as target domain of 'sub1.sub2.domain.net' arrives
    at the XMail server, 'AND' XMail does not have a real domain
    'sub1.sub2.domain.net' inside its domain list, XMail decides if this
    domain gets a custom domain processing by trying to lookup:

    sub1.sub2.domain.net.tab
    .sub2.domain.net.tab
    .domain.net.tab
    .net.tab
    .tab

    inside the 'custdomains' directory.

    If one of these files is found the incoming mail gets custom domain
    processing by executing commands that are stored in such a file.
