We do e-mail services for a few of our clients (POP3 and forwarding), but
have a hard time explaining to people what an alias is...

Has anyone come up with some cool, simple analogy that explains it?

How about explaining it to them as a 'role' at the company.
marketing at theirDomain.com is not a person, but a role that one or more
people may have.  Rather than listing the specific person on the website,
you list the role which anyone can be assigned to.
