    When I enter mailx, it shows me that all my mail is either from
    "root", "uucp", or "jep" (jep is my login).

This is an easy one.  Check out /usr/lib/install.mail.  Once this script is
run your problems should go away.  Note: This script does MUCH MORE than
just fix the above problem.  Look at the script first and make sure you know
the consequences of running it.  (Such as installing smail).
