login aliases

The users table in the RoundCube database has a separate col for login
aliases. Unfortunately there's not UI to fill it in, you have to set it
manually using your favorite database admin tool.

In case you have specified a virtuser file in your config
($rcmail_config['virtuser_file']) the e-mail address will be looked up
on the first login (with your cryptic user name) and will then be added
automatically to the alias col. Virtuser files are text files that have
an email -> username pair on each line.


P.S. This is more a question to the users mailing list rather than the
developers list.
