Re: how to specify the priority of mailx mail ?

Looks like mailx(1) does not have such an option.

If you need to send such flagged message from the command line, then elm(1) could be a possible solution.

e.g. add these lines to $HOME/.elm/elmheaders:

Importance: high
X-Priority: 1

Then these flags are included if you send mail via elm:

echo testbody | elm -s testsubject
