What's the difference between aliasing and email forwarding?
There is no difference.

An alias is an e-mail address at your domain (youralias@yourdomain.com), that automatically forwards any mail it receives to some other address that you specify.

You can set up your aliases to forward either to the POP3 or IMAP account that we provide, or to any other valid Internet email address. When you sign up with us, we automatically set up a default alias: all_email_accounts@yourdomain.com forward to the POP3/IMAP account we provide. You can easily change this through the addresses section of the Mail tab of the account control panel.
