NAMEali - list nmh mail aliases
SYNOPSISali [-help] [-version] [-alias aliasfile] [-list | -nolist] [-user | -nouser] [aliases ...]
DESCRIPTIONali searches the named mail alias files for each of the given aliases. It creates a list of addresses for those aliases, and writes that list on standard output. If no arguments are given, ali outputs all alias entries. By default, when an alias expands to multiple addresses, the addresses are separated by commas and printed on as few lines as possible. If the -list switch is specified, and an address expands to multiple addresses, each address will appear on a separate line. The -user switch directs ali to perform its processing in an inverted fashion: instead of listing the addresses that each given alias expands to, ali will list the aliases that expand to each given address. The files specified by the profile entry “Aliasfile” and any additional alias files given by the -alias aliasfile switch will be read. Each alias is processed as described in mh-alias(5).
FILESAlias files are looked up in multiple locations: if the pathname is absolute or starts with “.” or “..” it is accessed directly; otherwise tilde expansion is done on user‐ names, then files are searched for in the user's Mail directory as specified in their pro‐ file. If not found there, the directory “/etc/nmh” is checked. $HOME/.mh_profile The user's profile.
PROFILE COMPONENTSPath: To determine the user's nmh directory Aliasfile: For a default alias file
DEFAULTSaliasfile /etc/nmh/MailAliases -nolist -nouser
