CONFLICT(8)		    System Manager's Manual		   CONFLICT(8)

NAME
       conflict	- search for alias/password conflicts

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/libexec/nmh/conflict [-search	directory] [-mail name]	[-ver-
	    sion] [-help] [aliasfiles ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Conflict	is deprecated and will be removed from the next	nmh release.

       Conflict	is a program that checks to see	if the interface  between  nmh
       and the transport system	is in good shape

       Conflict	 also checks for maildrops in /var/mail	which do not belong to
       a valid user.  It assumes that no user name will	start  with  `.',  and
       thus  ignores  files in /var/mail which begin with `.'.	It also	checks
       for entries in the group(5) file	which do not belong to a  valid	 user,
       and for users who do not	have a valid group number.  In addition	dupli-
       cate users and groups are noted.

       If the -mail name switch	is used, then the results will be sent to  the
       specified  name.	  Otherwise, the results are sent to the standard out-
       put.

       The -search directory switch can	be used	to  search  directories	 other
       than  /var/mail	and  to	 report	 anomalies  in those directories.  The
       -search directory switch	can appear more	than one time in an invocation
       to conflict.

       Conflict	 should	 be  run  under	cron(8), or whenever system accounting
       takes place.
