DESCRIPTION
     aliasadm makes changes to the alias map.

     The alias map is an NIS+ table object with four columns:

     alias           The name of the alias as a  null  terminated
                     string.



     expansion       The value of the alias as it would appear in
                     a sendmail /etc/aliases file.



     options         A list of options applicable to this  alias.
                     The   only  option  currently  supported  is
                     CANON. With this option,  if  the  user  has
                     requested an inverse alias lookup, and there
                     is more than one alias with this  expansion,
                     this alias is given preference.



     comments        An  arbitrary  string  containing   comments
                     about  this  alias. The sendmail(1M) command
                     reads  this  map  in  addition  to  the  NIS
                     aliases map and the local /etc/aliases data-
                     base.



OPTIONS
     -a              Add an alias.



     -c              Change an alias.



     -d              Delete an alias.



     -e              Edit the alias map.



     -I              Initialize the NIS+ aliases database.



     -l              List the alias map.



     -m              Print or match an alias.



     -D domainname   Edit the map in domain domainname instead of
                     the current domain.



     -f filename     When editing or listing  the  database,  use
                     filename instead of invoking the editor.



     -M mapname      Edit mapname instead of mail_aliases.



FILES
     /etc/aliases    mail aliases for the  local  host  in  ASCII
                     format

NOTES
     NIS+ might not  be  supported  in  future  releases  of  the
     Solaris  operating  system.  Tools to aid the migration from
     NIS+ to LDAP are available in the current  Solaris  release.
