Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-08-15 20:05:44 EDT
Already fixed (with a couple of other problems) in mailx-8.1.1-17.
Comment 2 Michael McEniry 2000-08-17 15:29:44 EDT
I'm experiencing this same core-dump behavior.  When 
will mailx-8.1.1-17 be available?
Comment 3 Blomgren, Peter 2000-08-17 20:42:14 EDT
I'm not sure when the updated rpm will be on the ftp servers,
for now you can get the SRC.RPM at

http://stoker.stanford.edu/~blomgren/Linux/mailx-8.1.1-17.src.rpm

(If traffic gets out of control, I'll have to take it down...)
Comment 4 Marek Greško 2001-02-11 11:30:23 EST
Well, the src.rpm above is not reachable. But the problem disappears after
setting hold flag in mail.rc.

Make your /etc/mail.rc looking like this:
set ask askcc append dot save crt hold
ignore Received Message-Id Resent-Message-Id Status Mail-From Return-Path Via
