Mails area recd on Outlook and have been configured to recv html mails.

On the linux box, there was suggestion that I use /bin/mail instead of /bin/mailx. But this did not work

lets see if i understand what you are trying to do,

you have outlook on windows set to recive and send HTML messages,
on linux you are using the /bin/mail, client to send and recive teh same messages but it only sends as plain text...


in that case i would recomend using a graphical mail client like thunderbird or Kontact (if you use KDE) or evolution( if you use gnome)

it shoudl be there on you system somwhere
