NAME
newaliases - Builds a new copy of the alias database SYNOPSIS
newaliases DESCRIPTION
The newaliases command builds a new copy of the alias file from source. The location of the alias source is controlled by the setting of the A processing flag either in the sendmail.cf file or by the sendmail -o option. By default, the source file is in /var/adm/send- mail/aliases. (The setting of the A processing flag also controls the location of the and files.) You must issue this command each time you change the alias source file for the change to take effect. Running this command is equivalent to running the sendmail command with the -bi option. FILES

NAME
aliases - aliases file for sendmail SYNOPSIS
/etc/aliases DESCRIPTION
This file describes user id aliases used by /usr/sbin/sendmail. It is formatted as a series of lines of the form name: name_1, name2, name_3, . . . The name is the name to alias, and the name_n are the aliases for that name. Lines beginning with white space are continuation lines. Lines beginning with `#' are comments. Aliasing occurs only on local names. Loops can not occur, since no message will be sent to any person more than once. After aliasing has been done, local and valid recipients who have a ``.forward'' file in their home directory have messages forwarded to the list of users defined in that file. This is only the raw data file; the actual aliasing information is placed into a binary format in the files /etc/aliases.dir and /etc/aliases.pag using the program newaliases(1). A newaliases command should be executed each time the aliases file is changed for the change to take effect. SEE ALSO

Because of restrictions in dbm(3X) a single alias cannot contain more than about 1000 bytes of information. You can get longer aliases by ``chaining''; that is, make the last name in the alias be a dummy name which is a continuation alias. 4th Berkeley Distribution October 22, 1996 ALIASES(5)
