CONFLICT(8)                        [nmh-1.1]                       CONFLICT(8)



NAME
       conflict - search for alias/password conflicts

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/mh/conflict [-search directory] [-mail name] [-version]
            [-help] [aliasfiles ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Conflict is a program that checks to see if the interface  between  nmh
       and the transport system is in good shape

       Conflict  also checks for maildrops in /var/mail which do not belong to
       a valid user.  It assumes that no user name will start  with  `.',  and
       thus  ignores  files in /var/mail which begin with `.'.  It also checks
       for entries in the group(5) file which do not belong to a  valid  user,
       and for users who do not have a valid group number.  In addition dupli-
       cate users and groups are noted.

       If the -mail name switch is used, then the results will be sent to  the
       specified  name.   Otherwise, the results are sent to the standard out-
       put.

       The -search directory switch can be used to  search  directories  other
       than  /var/mail  and  to  report  anomalies  in those directories.  The
       -search directory switch can appear more than one time in an invocation
       to conflict.

       Conflict  should  be  run  under cron(8), or whenever system accounting
       takes place.
