Description of problem:
mailx segfaults if
set from= some.put.after.a.space.com
line is present in /etc/mail.rc
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put lines
# mailx -s Test fkrska
Patch proposed (mailx silently sends email with From: MAILER-DAEMON). Perhaps even more desired behavior would be to detect empty "from" (which has no use case and often caused by user mistakenly put space after "=") and print warning on stderr.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
