CONFLICT(8)                                                        CONFLICT(8)




NAME

       conflict - search for alias/password conflicts


SYNOPSIS

       /usr/lib/nmh/conflict [-search directory]
            [-mail name] [aliasfiles...]  [-version] [-help]


DESCRIPTION

       Conflict  is  a program that checks to see if the interface between nmh
       and transport system is in good shape

       Conflict also checks for maildrops in /var/mail which do not belong  to
       a  valid  user.   It assumes that no user name will start with `.', and
       thus ignores files in /var/mail which begin with `.'.  It  also  checks
       for  entries in the group (5) file which do not belong to a valid user,
       and for users who do not have a valid group number.  In addition dupli-
       cate users and groups are noted.

       If  the  `-mail name'  switch is used, then the results will be sent to
       the specified name.  Otherwise, the results are sent  to  the  standard
       output.

       The  `-search directory' switch can be used to search directories other
       than /var/mail and to  report  anomalies  in  those  directories.   The
       `-search directory'  switch can appear more than one time in an invoca-
       tion to conflict.

       Conflict should be run under  cron (8), or whenever  system  accounting
       takes place.
