Mailx working but not sending mail

Hi All,
I have a unix server on which mailx is configured . Earlier i was getting proper mails but now some mails are getting stuck and i am not receiving the emails from the server.
I can see the mails in mailq.
Can you please help me with this . How can i receive these emails?

Check the logs of your Message Transfer Agent (MTA) which could be sendmail, postfix, exim, etc...
If it is a Linux box for example, you can check under /var/log the approriate file or directory related to "mail" or the MTA.
# 3  
Please post what Operating System and version you have.
As @zaxxon advises, the clues will be in the mail log for your mail software.
Other clues will be in the output from mailq which may include words like "Deferred" or whatever perhaps implying a problem upstream from your server.
