can we make "mailx" work on hp-ux work on Redhat?

we have quite some scripts which contain "mailx" tool that worked on HP-UX server, now we are moving them over on Oracle Linux. As far as I know, Oralce linux doesn't have "mailx", can we make it work on Oracle linux? Or do I have to use "mail" instead?

Thanks!

Check the Linux man page for mail and see if it matches HP-UX's mailx.  I think it pretty well matches?

Do you use mailx interactively or just in scripts?
