That's the one. Sorry I didn't spell it out very well (As you can all the
file anything you want) but in the parameter is virtual_alias_maps
= /path/to/virt_alias_maps/file. Likewise for virtual_mailbox_maps.

No you can use either. relay tells postfix to relay the mail to the IP
address using any transport type, smtp: tells Postfix to relay the message
using smtp to the IP address specified.

No, I don't think so (Although I have never tried!) just make the alias
maps read:

maruscya at marcuscya at marcuscy at

make sure you add as local is so Postfix knows
to deliver this mail locally.
