 NAME
      newaliases - rebuilds the database for the mail aliases file

 SYNOPSIS
      newaliases [-on]

 DESCRIPTION
      newaliases rebuilds the random access database 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.

    Options
      -on  Validate addresses.	When sendmail rebuilds the alias database
	   files, it will check the legality of all addresses to the right
	   of the colons.  Each address is validated.  If the validation
	   fails, the address is skipped and a warning message is displayed.

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

 AUTHOR
      newaliases was developed by the University of California, Berkeley,
      and originally appeared in 4.0BSD. The manual page originally came
      from sendmail 8.7.
