This question is hard to answer without knowing what you are using for an email system. Do you want to interface with this email system programmatically from ASP or are these email addresses and aliases within your ASP application? Please provide us with more information about what your application/system is doing.

Ok, that's great, but that doesn't really help us help you.

They obviously have an email server with which they can access thru a programming API such that when you register for an email alias, they create an email forwarding account for you in their email server. So you are going to need to find email server software that allows you to talk with it programmatically, and you can then create aliases.

You have to have a real email server running on the domain that you want to "alias". You can't just create an email alias at random and have it work. When email is created and sent, the email server has to be able to figure out what the domain is so it can call the right receiving email server to deliver the mail.

In the case you sited above, IEEE has a system with lots of aliases that are basically "real" email addresses in that the IEEE email server knows how to deal with them. In this case, they are all just forwarders instead of mailboxes. This is a very common feature of email systems. None of this is a function of or can be performed by ASP. ASP can only talk with the email system in order to create the aliases.

I hope this clarifies things.
