        Afalias - alias files for af.


        Af alias files contain alias lines and optional blank lines and comment
        lines.  Comment lines begin with a semicolon (;).
        Alias lines look like:
            alias:real name:address list
        Aliases are case-insensitive non-NULL ASCII character strings, with any
        embedded colons preceded by a backslash.
        Real  names  are:  double-quoted  strings of non-NULL ASCII characters,
        with any embedded double-quotes preceded by a backslash; or, strings of
        non-NULL ASCII characters, with characters in the set ( ) < > [ ] @ , .
        ; : " % preceded by a backslash; or any combination  of  the  two.   In
        general,  the  obvious  works:  consult the Af Reference Manual for the
        fine detail in doubtful cases.
        Address lists are lists  of  comma-or-space-separated  electronic  mail
        addresses.   For  fine detail, consult the Af Reference Manual, and, if
        really desperate, RFC 822.
        Alias lines may be folded, with a newline followed by a  space  or  TAB
        being  equivalent  to a single space.  Folding may only occur after the
        alias and its following colon.


            ; An alias specifying a few users
            users:First af users:malc@thing kay@thing vato@thing vicar@thing
            ; Another alias specifying just one user
            malc:Mr Author himself:malc
            ; A mailing list folded over several lines
            testers:Af testing team:Malc Arnold <malc@thing>,
