editmap - query and edit records in database maps for sendmail
editmap [-C file] [-N] [-f] [-q | -u | -x] maptype mapname
editmap queries or edits one record in database maps used by
map lookups in sendmail(8). Arguments are passed on the
command line and
output (for queries) is directed to standard output.
Depending on how it is compiled, editmap handles up to three
database formats, selected using the maptype parameter.
They may be
dbm DBM format maps. This requires the ndbm(3) library.
btree B-Tree format maps. This requires the new
Berkeley DB library.
hash Hash format maps. This also requires the Berkeley DB library.
If the TrustedUser option is set in the sendmail configuration file and
editmap is invoked as root, the generated files will be
owned by the
