Specify Mail server in mailx

Dear All,

I am using HP-UNIX. I want to specify host in mailx command line.

A -> B

I am in Server A. And run a mailx command line to send mail to abc@xyz.com. But Server A don't know where xyz.com is.

It needs to send this mail to Server B to help him to send mail to xyz.com.

How in the mailx command to specify server B?

You do not specify this on the command line. Assuming you are using sendmail as your MTA (the default on HP-UX), you need to modify your /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file. Look for the line that reads "# "Smart" relay host (may be null)".
Modify that directive to include the hostname of your relay. Example:


(note that the letters "DS" are part of the command syntax and should be immediately followed by a hostname)

In bash, grep -v -e '^[[:space:]]*$' file.txt will filter all the blank lines from file.txt and save the results in a file called file.txt.
True or False?
