Manage Sympa aliases (Obsoleted)


alias_manager.pl was obsoleted as of Sympa 6.2.24, and will be removed in the future. To manage aliases based on template, setting "alias_manager Template" in sympa.conf or robot.conf is recommended.


alias_manager.pl add listname domain [ file ]

alias_manager.pl del listname domain [ file ]


Alias_manager is a program that helps in installing aliases for newly created lists and deleting aliases for closed lists.

Alias management is performed only if it was setup in /etc/sympa/sympa.conf (sendmail_aliases configuration parameter).

Administrators using MTA functionalities to manage aliases (i.e. virtual_regexp and transport_regexp with postfix) can disable alias management by setting sendmail_aliases configuration parameter to none.


add listname domain [ file ]

Add the set of aliases for the mailing list listname in the domain domain.

del listname domain [ file ]

Remove the set of aliases for the mailing list listname in the domain domain.


$SENDMAIL_ALIASES sendmail aliases file.
