Configure Mailx
I like to configure mailx so that I can send/receive emails to/from outside.
Can someone tell me how to configure mailx SMTP, for this purpose?

Just use .mailrc
Hello, Gerardoj (and whoever may read this post):

To send mail using an external smtp, just add the lines

set smtp=<your-smtp>
set from='<your-email-address> (<your-display-name>)'

to your ~/.mailrc file.

If you also want to receive mail as ususal, just look in the man-page of mailx for "account" for more settings.
