Default postfix setup ok but extension needed

I am trying to set up something called a mail2news gateway with postfix.

I almost know what to do but just need a little push to finish off the mail2news setup.

In the details below it tells how it is done:

>If the gateway is going to provide functionality for munging From addresses, the >following aliases must be added to the mail aliases file.

>mail2news_nospam: mail2news
>mail2news_munge: mail2news

So for example say my user name is hotchilli
and mail is hotchiili@mydomain.com

So in the mail aliases file I just add the lines:

mail2news_nospam: hotchilli?
mail2news_munge: hotchilli?

and which aliases file/
/etc/aliases or

so pepole can send mail via mail2news_nospam@mydomian.com
and mail2news_munge@mydomain.com
