aliases - aliases file for ZMailer
.forward - user’s .forward file for ZMailer
All lines beging with ‘#’ are comments.
Lines begining with white space are extensions to previous line.
This file describes user ID aliases used by zmailer(1zm). The file
resides in ZMailer’s database directory, which usually has a symlink to
this file from /etc. Content of the file is formatted as a series of
lines of form:
name: name2, name3, name4, ...
Each "name:" label must be valid RFC-822 localpart or address entity,
and the colon must not have white-space in between ’name’, and itself.
The labels may actually be quoted-strings in RFC-822 style:
Valid labels include:
"post office manager":
The targets must be valid RFC-822 address type objects; specifically
following BSD-Sendmail type things do not work, and must be converted
to RFC-822 format:
bsd-name: |/path/to/foo/faa, \bsd-name
zm-name: "|/path/to/foo/faa", "\zm-name"
both-name: user@somewhere, another@elsewere
The .forward file contains addresses that users want their incoming
email to be sent to. It may be some program (like procmail), or it may
be another address. Some examples for user "user":
BSD-Sendmail lets those addresses be written without quotes, however it
is against RFC-822 rules.
zmailer(1zm), sendmail(8zm), zdbases.conf(5zm).
The aliases file format appeared in 4.0BSD.
