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''.

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

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

FILES
       /etc/mail/aliases   The mail aliases file

SEE ALSO
       aliases(5), sendmail(8)
