NEWALIASES(1)                                                    NEWALIASES(1)




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/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/aliases        The mail aliases file


SEE ALSO

       aliases(5), sendmail(8)


HISTORY

       The newaliases command appeared in 4.0BSD.
