NAME

newaliases - Builds a new copy of the alias database  

SYNOPSIS

newaliases


 

DESCRIPTION

The newaliases command builds a new copy of the alias file from source. The location of the alias source is controlled by the setting of the A processing flag either in the sendmail.cf file or by the sendmail -o option. By default, the source file is in /var/adm/sendmail/aliases. (The setting of the A processing flag also controls the location of the .dir and .pag files.)

You must issue this command each time you change the alias source file for the change to take effect. Running this command is equivalent to running the sendmail command with the -bi option.
