Sendmail & Aliases

Post by Bill Gillesp » Sat, 19 Sep 1998 04:00:00



I am running Redhat 5.1 & Sendmail-8.8.7-17.

In reviewing my maillog I noticed the following message:

Sep 17 20:56:40 hostname sendmail[4304]: alias database
/etc/aliases.db out of date

Sendmail is working, but how do i fix this problem?

Have you run 'newaliases' lately?
You need to run that whenever you change /etc/aliases.

1. Sendmail & aliases

I have to use autoresponders in my linux box, and I've tried to use a
pipe as the destination address in /etc/aliases:


and this works perfectly.

But when I try and do the same in /etc/maildb/domainaliases (my virtual
mail database):


I get: "server error:cannot send mail directly to a program"

Why????????

Thanks
