       aliasmail -  expand system wide mail aliases

       upas/aliasmail arg ...

       Aliasmail  expands  mail	 aliases,  its	arguments,  according to alias
       files.  Aliasmail is normally invoked by a rule	in  the	 upas  rewrite
       file, rewrite(6).

       If  a  line of an alias file begins with #include, the line is replaced
       by the contents of the file whose name follows.	Other lines, beginning
       with # are ignored as comment.

       Otherwise,  lines begin with a name.  The rest of a name line gives the
       expansion.  The expansion may contain multiple  addresses  and  may  be
       continued  to  another  line by appending a backslash.  Items are sepa‐
       rated by white space.

       The alias files are searched in the order  they	are  listed,  one  per
       line,  in /mail/lib/namefiles.  If the name is not found, the expansion
       is taken to be local!name.  Under the -f option, alias files listed  in
       /mail/lib/fromfiles  are consulted instead, and the domain part only of
       the expansion is printed.
