NAME

       conflict - search for alias/password conflicts

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/lib/mh/conflict [-search directory] [-mail name] [-version] [-help] [aliasfiles ...]

DESCRIPTION

       Conflict  is  a  program that checks to see if the interface between nmh and the transport
       system is in good shape

       Conflict also checks for maildrops in /var/mail which do not belong to a valid  user.   It
       assumes  that  no user name will start with `.', and thus ignores files in /var/mail which
       begin with `.'.  It also checks for entries in the group(5) file which do not belong to  a
       valid  user,  and  for  users who do not have a valid group number.  In addition duplicate
       users and groups are noted.

       If the -mail name switch is used, then the results will be sent  to  the  specified  name.
       Otherwise, the results are sent to the standard output.

       The -search directory switch can be used to search directories other than /var/mail and to
       report anomalies in those directories.  The -search directory switch can appear more  than
       one time in an invocation to conflict.

       Conflict should be run under cron(8), or whenever system accounting takes place.
