SYNOPSIS

newaliases [-f file]

DESCRIPTION

newaliases rebuilds the random access database for the mail aliases file, the location of which is defined in smtpd.conf(5), and which by default is /usr/local/etc/mail/aliases. If using database (db) files this utility must be run every time the aliases(5) file is changed.

The options are as follows:
-f file
  Use file as the configuration file, instead of the default /usr/local/etc/mail/smtpd.conf.

Note: this utility is provided for sendmail compatibility. The preferred way of rebuilding the database is with makemap(8):

# makemap -t aliases /usr/local/etc/mail/aliases

FILES

/usr/local/etc/mail/aliases List of local user mail aliases.
/usr/local/etc/mail/virtual List of virtual host aliases.

EXIT STATUS


.Ex -std newaliases

SEE ALSO

smtpd.conf(5), makemap(8)

HISTORY

The newaliases command first appeared in
.Ox 4.6 as a replacement for the equivalent command shipped with sendmail.
