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.
