NEWALIASES(1)                                                    NEWALIASES(1)



NAME
       newaliases - rebuild the data base for the mail(1,8) aliases file(1,n)

SYNOPSIS
       newaliases

DESCRIPTION
       Newaliases  rebuilds  the  random(3,4,6) access(2,5) data base for the mail(1,8) aliases
       file(1,n) /etc/mail(1,8)/aliases.  It must be run each time(1,2,n) this file(1,n) is  changed
       in(1,8) order for the change to take effect.

       Newaliases is identical to ``sendmail(1,8) -bi''.

       The newaliases utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if(3,n) an error(8,n) occurs.

       Notice:  do  not  use  makemap to create the aliases data base, because
       newaliases puts(3,n) a special token into the data base that is required  by
       sendmail.

FILES
       /etc/mail(1,8)/aliases   The mail(1,8) aliases file(1,n)

SEE ALSO
       aliases(5), sendmail(1,8)(8)

HISTORY
       The newaliases command appeared in(1,8) 4.0BSD.
