can't receive mail using mailx

Hi,

My coleague is not getting emails sent from "mailx...", however other people and I are able to getting messages, can anyone tell me what could be the cause of her problem?

When I use "mailx -v.." I can see the echo is the same either sending to me or her. It says queued mail for delivery. And the /var/spool/mqueue folder is empty.

Thanks

Is the recipient on a remote server?
Does the recipient receive other mail?
How does the recipient normally read their mail (eg: POP, command line etc)?

She use outlook on windows. It is under windows network but both wondows and unix is in the LAN. I think she is using it to receive both the company mail and a outside mail. Please help. Thanks

When you say yourself and other people receive mail successfully, are you on the same network?

Well, the problem certainly isn't at your end.

You would need the person who looks after the Exchange server (I'm assuming that's what is running on the Windows network) to see if they can see anything in their logs.
