Re: mailx

If you use mailx, you don't have and cannot save a copy of the sent mail into a "sent" folder. You have to use a more sophisticated mail program such as elm or pine to be able to maintain a "sent" folder.

mailx(1) is a mail client, not a server side delivery agent.

If you want to see what you sent in mailx, you should use the "record=filename" variable.

If you want to see what was sent by sendmail, you should look at the logs: /var/adm/syslog/mail.log

Sure you do, see above.

Re: mailx

Hi John,

mailx is an interactive message processing system. It provides a flexible environment for sending and receiving messages electronically. mailx provides commands to save, delete, and reply to messages.

You can use mailx to edit, review, and modify messages. By default, incoming mail is stored in a standard file called a system mailbox, unless you specify an alternate mailbox file using the -f option. As incoming messages are read from the system mailbox, they are marked to be moved to a secondary file for storage. When you exit from mailx, these marked messages are moved to the secondary storage file. Hence these messages are not displayed the next time mailx is invoked. Messages remain in this file until removed explicitly.

The programs mailx, elm, and talk are the mailing utilities. The mailx program provides a comfortable, flexible environment for sending and receiving messages electronically. The elm program is a screen-oriented electronic mail processing system. The talk utility is a two-way, screen-oriented communication program.
