mailx problem

Hi.
Maybe stupid but I can't send mail with mailx 8.1.1-2

[root@host] pacman -Ql mailx
mailx /etc/
mailx /etc/mail.rc
mailx /usr/
mailx /usr/bin/
mailx /usr/bin/mail
mailx /usr/man/
mailx /usr/man/man1/
mailx /usr/man/man1/mail.1.gz
mailx /usr/share/
mailx /usr/share/misc/
mailx /usr/share/misc/mail.help
mailx /usr/share/misc/mail.tildehelp

package is required when using cron, problem is that is seems not to be working without sendmail, should not be relying on it if not available I think.

Output when trying to send mail
mail -s test root@localhost
testing
.
EOT
/usr/sbin/sendmail: No such file or directory:

mail and mailx command seems to be different and did look at src dir when building the package and binary file is "mail" and not "mailx" which is missing on my system

What is wrong here?

Re: mailx problem

Again!
What are you people using as internal mailer if not using bundled mailx client (base/mailx)??

Re: mailx problem

pacman -Qo /usr/sbin/sendmail
/usr/sbin/sendmail is owned by postfix 2.1.4-1
fire up that pacman with -S postfix
