I would also like to mailbox aliasing at the server level.

I administer a cyrus imapd system that was designed before the advent of 
virtual domains. To accomodate multiple domains on one server, the
mailboxes were created in the format of "".

What I'm looking for now is the ability to give "user1" a way to configure
his/her POP3/IMAP mail client so that the "" portion
wouldn't be required.

How hard would implementing something like this be?
