Finally I achieved making alias to work by changing the user_query:

#FROM users WHERE username = '%n' AND domain = '%d'

TO :

FROM users WHERE username = '%n' AND domain = '%d' or email=(select 
destination from forwards where source='%u');

But I don't know if that's the right way.

Wanting for any suggestion ....
