setting up an email server


I am trying to setup an email server in centOS 5.5 and I followed the instructions to the T but I am unable to use 'mailx' which is one of the last steps. It tells me that mailx is not a valid command but when i do a 'yum install mailx' it says that it is installed with all updates. Anyone able to help with this??

the link to the walk though is http://library.linode.com/email/post...mysql-centos-5

Do
Code:
which mailx
to figure out why you are not running /bin/mailx.

/usr/bin/which: no mailx in (/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin)

this is what i get when i do the 'which mailx' command.

I have removed mailx and reinstalled it but i have the same issue

when i try to start the dovecot service i get error " Starting Dovecot Imap: Error: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot.conf line 1095: Authentication process already exists with the same name (section changed in /etc/dovecot.conf at line 1093)
Fatal: Invalid configuration in /etc/dovecot.conf "

lines 1093-1095 are
}

auth default {

I copy/pasted what the walkthrough above says to but cant figure out how line 1093, which is only '}', conflicts with line 1095. Any help would be wonderful.

Also 'find mailx' gave an error "find: mailx: No such file or directory"
