mailx in cron using variable date

I am using a popular HOSTUMP script that dumps successfully to a log file named

servername_a_`date +%m%d%y`.log

I then want to kick off a second cron job that will email me that log. I am assuming it has to be something like

00 07 * * 2 mailx -s 'SERVERNAME Tape A Weekly Backup Log' whomever@somewhere.com <! `cat /vol4/admin/logs/servername
_a_`date +%m%d%y`.log`

I am pretty new to this (obviously) Can anyone provide a little guidance? Maybe it is just easier to do this in the script itself? Thanks!

reporter-mailx [-v] -d DIR [-c CONFFILE] DESCRIPTION
The tool reads a problem directory, composes an email message from the directory contents, and uses mailx to send the message to specified recipient. Properties of email messages can be specified in a configuration file, and via environment variables. Configuration file Configuration file contains entries in a format "Option = Value". The options are: Subject The subject of the email message. EmailFrom The sender of the email message. EmailTo The recipient of the email message. SendBinaryData Use yes/true/on/1 to attach all binary files from the problem directory to the email. This can cause the emails to be very large. Integration with ABRT events reporter-mailx can be used as a reporter, to allow users report problems via email when they decide to do it. This usage is pre-configured in /etc/libreport/events.d/mailx_event.conf: EVENT=report_Mailx reporter-mailx It can also be used to notify administrator automatically when a problem happens. When this is desired, modify the event configuration file to run the tool on the post-create event: EVENT=post-create reporter-mailx OPTIONS
-d DIR Path to problem directory. -c CONFFILE Path to configuration file. When used in ABRT event system, the file contains site-wide configuration. Users can change the values via environment variables. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

Mailx_EmailTo Recipient of the email message. If nor the environment variable nor the corresponding option is defined, the message is send to "root@localhost".
