Yes - you can (and most probably need to) create additional tables in the horde 
database. Using the stock horde database would not help you, because
horde just uses it as a container to store your users' preferences.

What is the "mail alias of horde"? IMO, horde in general and imp in
special isn't aware of aliases at all.
