mailx persistent problem


hey guys. I am having this hugs problem with mailx and it's keeping my server from reporting statistics every night.
A couple days ago I tried to send a malformed email through mailx and it complained about it.
Now, two days after, I can't use mailx it at all! It still complains about the same message:
Code:
dsrv:~# mailx
/usr/bin/mailx: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
/usr/bin/mailx: line 1: `Reply-To: <user@domain.com>'
This happens evey time I try to call mailx (even "mailx -v") and I have no idea what to do. Is there a mailx queue that I can inspect?

Please fill in your distro info in your profile. For me "mailx" resides in /bin and is a symbolic link to /bin/mail. What does this return: 'type mailx; ls -al /usr/bin/mailx; file /usr/bin/mailx'? And with what process or command did you send that malformed e-mail?
