You do not need this. Once you ever sent a messqge to fidonet (echo or
netmail) you have your name - address translation in ifmail´s database,
and do not need any alias to receive mail sent for "Egor Egorov" at your

But anyway the trailing dot should not ever appear. It´quite unclear
where it could come from. You could try setting debug level to check
name translation (I don´t remember the letter, but you can look it in
misc/DEBUG) to watch what happens.
