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 order
     for the change to take effect.

     newaliases puts a special token into the data base that is required by
     sendmail(8).
