There are no headers included. Maybe you mean the first
"From" field (as opposed to "Fron:" with the ":"). Is that

According to "man mailx", the corresponding command is "ignore",
and the manual states:

	Header fields in the ignore list are not printed
	on your terminal when you print a message.

As I'm not using mail (mailx) regularly to customize it, I
assume that "ignore From" in ~/.mailrc should do the trick,
but this is just a guess. :-)
