Data Postfix Restart

I am really really new on UNIX system. I am trying to update our e-mail list. I added/deleted new members at etc/aliases but e-amil always got old e-mail lists. I reloaded postmaster but does not seem to be working. Anybody has any idea?

You need to run the command `newaliases` to rebuild the database.

Would you go little more on that, assuming I am a dummies and newbie.

Just run the command 'newaliases' in your shell. Read the manpage for the command. 'man newaliases'. There's also 'postalias' which does the same.

# newaliases
# man newaliases
# man postalias
