In RedHat/sendmail, the syntax is a little different. Here it is for
the alias for a single address and an alias for a list of addreses
I assume that in your complicated example, the word "aliasfile" is the
alias for a distribution list having the name "aliases."
In debian/postfix, the syntax found in my /etc/aliases is much
simpler. In /etc/aliases, I use the same syntax as with RedHat
sendmail, only build the database with the # postalias /etc/aliases
rather than # newaliases command. However, since my aliases don't
work, I'm not sure.
