newaliases - Builds a new copy of the alias database
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 and 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.
Contains source for the aliases for sendmail. Contains
binary files for the aliases database created by the
newaliases command. Contains binary files for the aliases
