That's easy enough. I pulled this out of the Emacs manual (C-h i Emacs RET):
Copying Messages Out to Files
These commands copy messages from an Rmail file into another file.
`o FILE RET'
Append a copy of the current message to the file FILE, using Rmail
file format by default (`rmail-output-to-rmail-file').
`C-o FILE RET'
Append a copy of the current message to the file FILE, using
system inbox file format by default (`rmail-output').

Using aliases is easy enough. They are read from your .mailrc file. However,
I haven't seen any mechanism to easily write them there other than editing the
file. Has anyone written one?
