Reading Delimited file and send mail with attachment

Hi All,

My requirement is:
1. To read a file that contains log file location and server name. The format of the file is something like this :

2. Now I wants to grep "error" string from the logfilename and put it into another file for each log.

3. Finally , i would like to send a mail containing as attachement all the files that have captured error string from the logs.

The code tried to acheive the above :

grep -i error $LOGFILE > /tmp/"$LOGFILE".txt
done < $FILENAME
Now, the problem is how could i attach all the files in a single mail and send it across.
