newaliases - rebuilds the database for the mail aliases file
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.
-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.
The newaliases utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
newaliases was developed by the University of California, Berkeley,
and originally appeared in 4.0BSD. The manual page originally came
from sendmail 8.7.
/etc/mail/aliases The mail aliases file.
/etc/mail/aliases.db Database of alias names.
