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.
