If someone is sending a mail from A to
>me (B) and this mail is aliased to C will this cause twice the traffic on
>internetconnection A-B and B-C
Are B and C on the same machine? Is C an alias of a primary domain on B? Is
C on a separate machine and you are "forwarding" the mail from B to C.

If C is an alias on the B machine, it is simply stored with the username on
the B machine that the C account is aliased to. If they are separate
machines, it will be recieved and forwarded, doubling your traffic.
