Mail aliases are convenient short names for long email addresses or for lists of email addresses. The file where you keep your `aliases' is `~/.mailrc'. You write an alias like this:
alias geo email@example.com
When you write a message to George, address it to `geo'; the mailer will automatically expand `geo' to the full address.
