NEWALIASES(8)           OpenBSD System Manager's Manual          NEWALIASES(8)

NAME
     newaliases - rebuild the data base for the mail aliases file

SYNOPSIS
     newaliases

DESCRIPTION
     Newaliases rebuilds the random access data base for the mail aliases file
     /etc/mail/aliases.  It must be run each time this file is changed in or-
     der for the change to take effect.

     Newaliases is identical to ``sendmail -bi''.

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

     Notice: do not use makemap(8) to create the aliases data base, because
     newaliases puts a special token into the data base that is required by
     sendmail(8).

FILES
     /etc/mail/aliases  The mail aliases file

SEE ALSO
     aliases(5), mailer.conf(5), makemap(8), sendmail(8)
