Yes sendmail can have multiple aliases files, just comma seperate them in =
the sendmail.cf file. This is for 8.11.1 which I am running - do not know =
for older versions. The only problem is that newaliases needs to be run as =
root, or else modify the sendmail.cf file to automagically rebuild the =
aliases files from time to time (you can specify the time out). I don't =
know what happens though when broken alias files are fed in though - does =
it just ignore the new file?
