NAME

       ali - list nmh mail aliases

SYNOPSIS

       ali [-help] [-version] [-alias aliasfile] [-list | -nolist] [-user | -nouser] [aliases
            ...]

DESCRIPTION

       ali 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).

FILES

       Alias 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
       usernames, then files are searched for in the user's Mail directory as specified in  their
       profile.  If not found there, the directory “/etc/nmh” is checked.

       $HOME/.mh_profile   The user's profile.
