+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #188313 +++

Description of problem:
The options for mailx descriped in the mailx man page does not match the
implementation of mailx.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mailx-12.4-1

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "man mailx"
2. use that information to try to use /bin/mailx
3.

Actual results:

Many options fail.
For example, the "-e" option is described in the man page, but running "mailx
-e" produces:
mailx: invalid option -- e
Usage: mail [-iInv] [-s subject] [-c cc-addr] [-b bcc-addr] to-addr ...
            [-- sendmail-options ...]
       mail [-iInNv] -f [name]
       mail [-iInNv] [-u user]

Expected results:
The options described in the mailx man page should match what the mailx program
accepts.
