I am running Solaris 9 and using sendmail.  when I enter a new email address I use admintool to enter the info then in pico /etc/aliases I enter the username and email. recently the new settings I have entered have not been working. I was doing some reading and talking and I came up with the need to run "newaliases"  This operating system is fairly new to me and I am not familiar with the steps on how to run this command.  Keep in mind I am a new user and could use detailed instructions. Thanks

assuming your alias file is at /etc/mail/aliases, just type (as root) newaliases
type: man newaliases to read the manual
