Configure mailx or sendmail


I would like to configure mailx or sendmail to send out some mails to some users. I tried searching online for the configuration but it was kinda confusing. I thought that posting here might get someone to work with me step by step

I tried sending out mail but i did not receive in my exchange inbox.
This is the command.
echo "This is the body."| mailx -s "mailx Test1"

If i use this command, which config file do i need to amend? mailx.rc? or ?

Appreciate any kind soul.
