Aliases in Linux or Unix

Do you mean mail address aliases in Sendmail or shell/environment command aliases? Or another type of alias?

Aliases are a function of your shell (unless they are for a program such as Sendmail) check out the man pages for your particular shell (eg. man bash) and search for the alias command within that manual. As well as using man alias for general information. To my knowledge there are no limits to how many aliases you can have. However a quick test you can do is write a small script that increments a counter and aliases the number to some constant value.
