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 is identical to "sendmail -bi".

     Notice: do not use makemap(8) to create the aliases data base, because
     newaliases puts a special token into the data base that is required by
     sendmail(8).

     The newaliases utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
