SYNOPSIS

/usr/sadm/bin/smmaillist subcommand [ auth_args ] -- [ subcommand_args ]

DESCRIPTION

The smmaillist command manages one or more email alias entries for the appropriate files in the local /etc files name service or a NIS or NIS+ name service. subcommands smmaillist subcommands are: add Creates a new email alias definition and adds it to the appropriate files. To add an entry, the adminis- trator must have the solaris.admin.usermgr.write authorization. delete Deletes an email alias entry. You can delete only one entry at a time. To delete an entry, the administrator must have the solaris.admin.usermgr.write authoriza- tion. Note: You cannot delete Postmaster or Mailer- Daemon aliases. list Lists one or more email alias entries. To list an entry, the administrator must have the solaris.admin.usermgr.read authorization. modify Modifies an email alias entry. To modify an entry, the administrator must have the solaris.admin.usermgr.write authorization.

OPTIONS

The smmaillist authentication arguments, auth_args, are derived from the smc(1M) arg set and are the same regardless of which subcommand you use. The smmaillist command requires the Solaris Management Console to be initialized for the command to succeed (see smc(1M)). After rebooting the Solaris Management Console server, the first Solaris Manage- ment Console connection might time out, so you might need to retry the command. The subcommand-specific options, subcommand_args, must come after the auth_args and must be separated from them by the -- option. auth_args SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 1 Maintenance Commands smmaillist(1M) The valid auth_args are -D, -H, -l, -p, -r, and -u; they are all optional. If no auth_args are specified, certain defaults will be assumed and the user may be prompted for additional information, such as a password for authentica- tion purposes. These letter options can also be specified by their equivalent option words preceded by a double dash. For example, you can use either -D or --domain with the domain argument. -D | --domain domain Specifies the default domain that you want to manage. The syntax of domain is type:/host_name/domain_name, where type is nis, nisplus, dns, ldap, or file; host_name is the name of the machine that serves the domain; and domain_name is the name of the domain you want to manage. (Note: Do not use nis+ for nisplus.) If you do not specify this option, the Solaris Manage- ment Console assumes the file default domain on what- ever server you choose to manage, meaning that changes are local to the server. Toolboxes can change the domain on a tool-by-tool basis; this option specifies the domain for all other tools. -H | --hostname host_name:port Specifies the host_name and port to which you want to connect. If you do not specify a port, the system con- nects to the default port, 898. If you do not specify host_name:port, the Solaris Management Console con- nects to the local host on port 898. You may still have to choose a toolbox to load into the console. To override this behavior, use the smc(1M) -B option, or set your console preferences to load a "home toolbox" by default. -l | --rolepassword role_password Specifies the password for the role_name. If you specify a role_name but do not specify a role_password, the system prompts you to supply a role_password. Passwords specified on the command line can be seen by any user on the system, hence this option is considered insecure. -p | --password password Specifies the password for the user_name. If you do not specify a password, the system prompts you for one. Passwords specified on the command line can be seen by any user on the system, hence this option is considered insecure. -r | --rolename role_name Specifies a role name for authentication. If you do SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 2 Maintenance Commands smmaillist(1M) not specify this option, no role is assumed. -u | --username user_name Specifies the user name for authentication. If you do not specify this option, the user identity running the console process is assumed. -- This option is required and must always follow the preceding options. If you do not enter the preceding options, you must still enter the -- option. subcommand_args Note: Descriptions and other arg options that contain white spaces must be enclosed in double quotes. o For subcommand add: -a address1 -a address2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the new email address. See sendmail(1M). -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -n alias_name Specifies the name of the alias you want to add. See sendmail(1M). o For subcommand delete: -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -n alias_name Specifies the alias you want to delete. o For subcommand list: -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -n alias_name (Optional) Specifies the name of the alias you want to display. If you do not specify an alias, all aliases are listed. o For subcommand modify: -a address1 -a address2 . . . SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 3 Maintenance Commands smmaillist(1M) (Optional) Specifies new email address(es) to replace the existing one(s). See sendmail(1M). -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -n alias_name (Optional) Specifies the name of the alias you want to modify. -N new_alias_name Specifies the new alias name. Use only when renaming an alias. See sendmail(1M).

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Creating an alias The following creates the coworkers alias and adds the fol- lowing member list: bill@machine1, sue@machine2, and me@machine3 to the alias. ./smmaillist add -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n coworkers \ -a bill@machine1 -a sue@machine2 -a me@machine3 Example 2: Deleting a mail alias The following deletes the my_alias alias: ./smmaillist delete -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n my_alias Example 3: Displaying members of a mail alias The following displays the list of members belonging to the my_alias alias: ./smmaillist list -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n my_alias Example 4: Displaying members of all mail aliases The following displays the list of members belonging to all mail aliases: ./smmaillist list -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 4 Maintenance Commands smmaillist(1M) Example 5: Renaming a mail alias The following renames the current_name mail alias to new_name: ./smmaillist modify -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- \ -n current_name -N new_name Example 6: Redefining an address list The following changes the recipients of the alias my_alias to bill@machine1. Any previous recipients are deleted from the alias. ./smmaillist modify -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- \ -n my_alias -a bill@machine1
