I have installed linux CentOS 5. Earlier i had fedora linux and mailx command was working fine. Now i changed to CentOS 5 linux version, but when i try to use mailx command on terminal it is showing error of "bash: mailx: command not found"
. I have searched on forum, i found to search mailx rpm installed or not and is it on path or not. i have done all things

 rpm -q mailx


showing me this rpm is installed

then i try to search with both which and find command

which -a mailx

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

it is showing me mailx is not found

i use again find command

find -name mailx

it is not also showing mailx command.

if i want sendmail it is showing
which -a sendmail


After all affords it is still not working what should i do now. I want to run mailx command

It seems that RPM is not installed properly. I will advice to uninstall mailx RPM and find all file related to mailx rpm or package and remove it from system. After this again install mailx RPM pacakage. Hope this will solve problem and you will find mailx command.
