The option are mutually exclusive, you can't have a mechanism allow some
lookups to produce no result while the other requires lookups to produce
a result.

Note that the aliases and virtual are defined in the action, so you have
the possibility to use aliases and virtuals on different rules. just not
on the same ones.

femail and related operate _after_ the end user is resolved:

1- user submits r...@poolp.org in the smtp session
2- aliases/virtuals lookup resolve 'root' into 'gilles'
3- userbase resolves 'gilles' into uid 1000 and homedir /home/gilles
4- THEN femail/fdm/procmail/whatever runs as uid 1000
