NAME

newaliases - rebuild the data base for the mail aliases file  

SYNOPSIS

newaliases  

DESCRIPTION

Newaliases rebuilds the random access data base for the mail aliases file /etc/mail/aliases. It must be run each time this file is changed in order for the change to take effect.

Newaliases is identical to ``sendmail -bi''.

The newaliases utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

Notice: do not use makemap to create the aliases data base, because newaliases puts a special token into the data base that is required by sendmail.  

FILES

/etc/mail/aliases
The mail aliases file
 

SEE ALSO

aliases(5), sendmail(8)
