ALIASMAIL(8)ALIASMAIL(8)NAMEaliasmail - 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
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.
