    newaliases is missing

    Hello Web Hosting Experts,

    Mail is working fine and I receive root's email. My partner [email protected] would like to receive the root e-mails however she doesn't.

    I added her email to the /etc/aliases as seen below and then tried to run the newaliases command and discovered that it doesn't seem to exist. Has anyone else ran into this type of issue before? How do I get root e-mails directed to both of us?


    cPanel 11.24.5-R37629 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
    CENTOS 5.3 i686 standard on bamboo

    [email protected] [/etc]# tail -2 aliases
    # Person who should get root's mail
    root: [email protected], [email protected]
    [email protected] [/etc]# newaliases
    bash: newaliases: command not found
    [email protected] [/etc]# updatedb
    [email protected] [/etc]# locate newaliases
    [email protected] [/etc]#
    [email protected] [/etc]# uname -a 
    Linux 2.6.18-128.1.14.el5PAE #1 SMP Wed Jun 17 07:15:54 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    Thanks, David

    a) create a file vi /root/.forward ( its a hidden file ) and given the entries as follows
    [email protected],[email protected]

    save and exit

    The above will fix your issue.

    b) Otherwise you can directly setup this from your whm
