Email with .dat file as attachment

Hi, I am trying to email a .dat file as an attachment from unix MS-outlook.

I tried uuencode but it is not attaching the file, rather it is placing some junk data in the body of mail. Below is my code

Code:
(cat Message.txt; uuencode  Attach_File.DAT Attch_File.DAT) | mailx -s "SUBJECT" glaveti@frk.com

Can anyone please help?

Thanks

uuencode(1c)															      uuencode(1c)

Name
       uuencode, uudecode - encode/decode a binary file for transmission via mail

Syntax
       uuencode [file] remotedest | mail sys1!sys2!..!decode
       uudecode [file]

Description
       The  and  commands are used to send a binary file by uucp (or other) mail.  This combination can be used over indirect mail links even when
       is not available.

       The command takes the named source file (default standard input) and produces an encoded version on the standard output.  The encoding uses
       only printing ASCII characters, and includes the mode of the file and the remotedest for recreation on the remote system.

       The  command  reads  an	encoded file, strips off any leading and trailing lines added by mailers, and recreates the original file with the
       specified mode and name.

       The intent is that all mail to the user ``decode'' should be filtered through the program.  This way  the  file	is  created  automatically
       without	human  intervention.   This  is possible on the uucp network by either using or by making be a link to instead of In each case, an
       alias must be created in a master file to get the automatic invocation of

       If these facilities are not available, the file can be sent to a user on the remote machine who can uudecode it manually.

       The encode file has an ordinary text form and can be edited by any text editor to change the mode or remote name.

Restrictions
       The file is expanded by 35% (3 bytes become 4 plus control information) causing it to take longer to transmit.

       The user on the remote system who is invoking (often must have write permission on the specified file.
