Alias file

From Messaging Server Technical Reference Wiki

In legacy configuration, especially in older MTA configurations, aliases were stored in the MTA alias file, normally named aliases and stored in the MTA table (config) directory. In more modern MTA configurations, most aliases are stored instead in LDAP, with only a few basic aliases stored elsewhere: either in the aliases file in legacy configuration, or as a set of values in an alias group in Unified Configuration.

Even though in Unified Configuration the old aliases file is not actually used, the alias settings may be viewed "as if" they were in the aliases file by using the msconfig command edit aliases:

msconfig> edit aliases
