mailx gives this error

Any ideas or links to get mailx to work?

Thanks in advance!

check is your sendmail binary exist.

ls -l /usr/lib/sendmail.

if yes check the binary, may be corrupt or overwritten, also you might want to check the sym links related to the sendmail.

if no, check for the mta selector, check if sendmail package is installed.

Hope this help!

make sure you have sendmail installed.

#rpm -qa | grep sendmail
