    I need some help and I know someone here knows the answer 'cuase all the geniuses are AntiOnline Members

    OK So to the point.
    I need to create an alias pointing at a file that has the users listed in it.

    eg.
    I need the all alias
    to point at /etc/userlist

    how do I do this in the /etc/aliases file?

    I would really appreciate ANY help I can get.

    Thank you,

    You could try this

    alias userlist "vi /location/of/file"

    Then if you type userlist the contents the the file will be listed.

    ?

    Hi r3b00+,
    either I have no idea what you are talking about (most likely) or I did not make myself clear.
    If the latter is true then may be what I forgot to mention was that I am trying to send mail to all@isp.com that will then be sent to all of the users in my list. I would like to do this using my existing linux 7.3 box running Sendmail.

    I really appreciate the help though
