"Virtual domains" now "Aliases"?

My FM setup has been on automatic pilot for several years, and when I set things up originally I took some notes about what I had done, and why.

As I was reviewing these notes, I came across the following, which I wrote about 4 years ago: At Fastmail, under OPTIONS-->Virtual Domains, all mail is set to forward to Gmail as a backup.

I can no longer find any reference to "Options" or "Virtual Domains" in FM's settings. In poking around, I'm wondering if that functionality has been taken over by the "Aliases" screen. Am I right about this or am I missing something?

You are correct. The changes were actually made quite some time ago. What was once personalities is now identities. Identities also incorporate what used to be POP3 accounts. Virtual domain aliases have been folded into aliases. I think personally that the chosen terminology is misguided, but it is mostly not complicated once you figure out what they have done.
