Description Chris Negus 2001-01-19 23:44:31 UTC
I made a change to the /etc/aliases file and ran the /usr/bin/newaliases
command to update the aliases databases. I received the error message:

newaliases: cannot open '/etc/aliases': No such file or directory

The /etc/aliases file exists. It is owned by root and has 644 permissions.
Opening permissions (666) didn't help.

Comment 1 R P Herrold 2001-01-21 16:22:13 UTC
workaround is to remove single-quotes around /etc/aliases in sendmail.cf
