	Edit the /etc/aliases file as follows:

comments:	joey,bob,sam,tim,mary,linda

	Then type in "newaliases" which will "make" your aliases file
work. At that time, when you send a email message to comments@yourhost,
joey, bob, sam,tim,etc... will get it.
Also you can read the man pages for aliases for more info!!!
