NAME

       ali - list mail aliases

SYNOPSIS

       ali [-alias aliasfile] [-list | -nolist] [-normalize | -nonormalize]
            [-user | -nouser] [-version] [-help] [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  aliases  expands  to  multiple  addresses,  the
       addresses are separated by commas  and  printed  on  as  few  lines  as
       possible.   If  the  -list  option  is  specified, then when an address
       expands to multiple addresses, each address will appear on  a  separate
       line.

       The  switch  -user 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.  If
       the -normalize switch is given, ali will try to track down the official
       hostname of the 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).

BUGS

       The -user option with -nonormalize is not entirely accurate, as it does
       not replace local nicknames for hosts with their official site names.
