when I create a new email account I use the admintool to create the use, and then pico /etc/aliases to enter in the user info. then I type newaliases.
This is the issue, sometimes this works for me and sometimes the new accounts do not. That has me stumped. Also, I noticed that there are three different aliases under /etc 1) aliases 2) aliases.save 3) aliasese
now..after looking at the different files I notice that there are differences between them.
This is my question?? I use Solaris 9 to manage POP3 accounts. Is this proceedure correct, if yes why does it work sometimes, if not what is the correct method of entering a new or changed account? As far as the aliases go, why three? I was under the impression that running "newalises" would update the database therefore allowing new/changed account to work properly.
