Assuming you mean to "include" other files in the base /etc/aliases
file, I don't think so, but I think you can specify multiple alias files
to some versions of sendmail. See your sendmail docs.
What we do here (on SunOS) is use a Perl program to merge multiple alias
files, both for NIS aliases and /etc/aliases. That allows automatic
generation of a class of aliases (firstname_lastname: username) as well
as separation of the Mj aliases from generated and fixed aliases. I keep
thinking about developing a Perl program to auto-generate the Mj aliases
from Mj config files.
