I gave the location of the actual aliases file in /etc/mail for
Solaris. /etc/aliases is provided, but is a symlink to the file in
One real difference between Solaris 9 and Solaris 10 is that the
sendmail M4 file setup has been moved from /lib/mail to /etc/mail/cf.
In practise, I copy the distribution M4 files to /usr/local/mail and
work from that copy.
I will note, and think that Brad and Mark will agree, that given the
predominance of Linux and Postfix on Mailman hosts, there probably is
very little interest among list subscribers for discussion of general
Solaris and sendmail issues. Both systems are well-supported on
Usenet news groups and sponsoring web sites.
