NAME

mkaliasa YP map conversion program

SYNOPSIS

mkalias [-nv] [-E | -e [-du]] input [output]

DESCRIPTION

mkalias is used to convert a mail.aliases map to a mail.byaddr map. This is an inverse map of user@host (or user!host) back to alias.
The options are as follows:
 
 
-d
Assume domain names are OK. Only useful together with -E or -e.
 
 
-E
Same as -e, but also check for any MX-record.
 
 
-e
Check host to verify that it exists.
 
 
-n
Capitalize name. e.g., mats.o.jansson becomes Mats.O.Jansson.
 
 
-u
Assume UUCP names are OK. Only useful together with -E or -e.
 
 
-v
Verbose mode.
 
 
input
Use this map as input.
 
 
output
Use this map as output. If the output map isn't given don't create database. Can be useful together with -E or -e.

BUGS

mkalias on SunOS 4.1.x seems to have a -s. Since I don't know what it is supposed to do I haven't implemented it. But it is accepted by the program.
