NAME

  newaliases - Builds a	new copy of the	alias database

SYNOPSIS

  newaliases

DESCRIPTION

  The newaliases command builds	a new copy of the alias	file from source. The
  location of the alias	source is controlled by	the setting of the A process-
  ing flag either in the sendmail.cf file or by	the sendmail -o	option.	By
  default, the source file is in /var/adm/sendmail/aliases. (The setting of
  the A	processing flag	also controls the location of the .dir and .pag
  files.)

  You must issue this command each time	you change the alias source file for
  the change to	take effect. Running this command is equivalent	to running
  the sendmail command with the	-bi option.

FILES
