Data mailx sender address customisation

Hi All,
I'm on UNIX -Solaris...
I'm trying to send mail usin Mailx..... The script is working fine and attachments are also being sent....
BUT, when I receive the mail,, the sender address shown is the unix login id name.... Any way by which I could manipulate this in my script command or any parameter that can set for this purpose....however, I would prefer manipulating in the shell script.

The present shell script.... is :

name=$1
cat /bdcusers/sddata/zv03 | uuencode /bdcusers/sddata/report.txt | mailx -s "ZV03 Report"
$name

Any help would be greatly apprciated...

Thankx and regds..
Smilie

Yes the sender can be changed. Use the -r option to mailx:
Code:
name=$1 
cat /bdcusers/sddata/zv03 | uuencode /bdcusers/sddata/report.txt | mailx -s -r new_email_addy@somedomain.com "ZV03 Report" $name
