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.

     newaliases accepts all the flags that sendmail(1M)  accepts.
     However,  most of these flags have no effect, except for the
     -C option and three of the Processing Options  that  can  be
     set from a configuration file with the -o option:

     -C /path/to/alt/config/file     Use alternate  configuration
                                     file.



     -oAfile                         Specify    possible    alias
                                     files.



     -oLn                            Set the default log level to
                                     n. Defaults to 9.



     -on                             Validate the RHS of  aliases
                                     when      rebuilding     the
                                     aliases(4) database.



     newaliases runs in verbose mode (-v option) automatically.
