As far as amvisd is concerned, knowing which domains are local
suffices. Individual users may be listed in @local_domains_maps
(e.g. in an SQL database table 'users' or in LDAP or statically),
but this is not necessary. It is probably best to list all
local domains in table 'users'. If individual users need specific
settings, these can be listed individually, in addition
to domain-only entries. An SQL lookup first tries to find an
entry with a full recipient address, but if there is none,
the search continues with looking for a domain or subdomain.
See README.lookups, section 'SQL LOOKUPS'.

If aliases fall within the same set of domains, the above
should suffice.
