The existing user_uid and user_pass from the horde database is not enough to 
authenticate a user for Dovecot or Exim? Which additional tables do i have to 
create in the horde database?

It is possible for a Imp user to make an alias for its e-mail address and use 
this to send and receive e-mail. Now I want use this possibility as a 
replacement (or substitute?) for the standard '/etc/aliases' file of Exim. 
Unfortunately I do not know how and where horde/Imp stores these aliases.
