Aliaswild Channel Option

Wildcard alias lookups (aliaswild)

Setting the aliaswild option on a destination channel causes an address of the form *@domain to be checked in the alias file and alias database if the regular lookup for localpart@domain fails. This lookup is performed before checking in the alias file and alias database for local parts without domains.

The effect of this setting is the same as if bit 2 (value 4) of the alias_domains MTA option is set; the only difference is that aliaswild only applies to a specific destination channel.
