NAME

ali - list mail aliases (only available within the message handling system, mh)  

SYNOPSIS

ali [-alias aliasfile] [-help] [-[no]list] [-[no]normalize] [-user useraddr] [-nouser] [aliases...]


 

OPTIONS

Specifies the alias file to be consulted by ali. You can specify more than one alias file, but each aliasfile must be preceded by -alias. In addition to any alias files that you specify, ali consults the system alias file /usr/lib/mh/MailAliases.

You can set up an entry in your .mh_profile so that ali automatically consults an alias file. To do this, add the Aliasfile entry to your profile. See mh_profile(4) for more information. Prints a list of the valid options to this command. Prints the addresses on separate lines. If you do not specify the -list option, the addresses are separated by commas and printed on as few lines as possible. Instructs ali to try to track down the official hostname of the address. This can be suppressed by using -nonormalize. The default is -nonormalize. Displays all the aliases that contain a specific name. Instead of listing the addresses that each given alias expands to, ali lists the aliases that expand to include each given address. You must specify the complete user name that you have used in your alias file.

The defaults for this command are:

-alias /usr/lib/mh/MailAliases -nolist -nonormalize -nouser
