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/spool/mail
       which  do  not belong to a valid user.  It assumes that no
       user name will start with `.', and thus ignores  files  in
       /var/spool/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 duplicate 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/spool/mail  and  to  report
       anomalies  in  those directories.  The `-search directory'
       switch can appear more than one time in an  invocation  to
       conflict.

       Conflict should be run under  cron (8), or whenever system
       accounting takes place.  ^/etc/nmh/mts.conf~^nmh mts  con-
