How do I use the "alias" command for the email. For example, I wrote "webmaster@mail.com" in the homepage, and the email in the "send to" is the same as well. But actually, it will email to "myusername@email.com" something like that?

If you don't have permission to edit /etc/aliases, you should ask someone who doed have permission to edit it.
Or, if there's an actual webmaster user on mail.com, they could set their ~webmaster/.forward file to myusername@email.com

the /etc/aliases file is the obvious answer.. but lacking access to it means you've got to revert to other steps..

try coding the html on the web page to send to your address.. eg


  <a href="mailto:my_id@email.com">webmaster@email.com</a>


this should put your address in the actual message, but the link people click on has
the webmaster name..


 good luck
