Help-send mail script


I have written one script for sending mails with attachment.

currently its working for only one recipient.

I want to send mails to n number of users by taking user input i.e number of users.

Output of current script:
Enter how many files : 1

Enter First Name : kiran
E-Mail ID:

Enter file name :
File Path : /apps12i/

Expected output:
Enter how many files : 1

Enter number of users : 2

Enter 1 name : kiran

Enter 2 name : karan

Enter file name :
File Path : /apps12i/

can anyone help me on this?????

Shell Script:

subject=" File Attached "
subject1="File Not Attached"
message=" Please Find The Attachment \n
` for i in {1..5}
echo  " \n"
 done `
'***' This is Auto Generated Mail Please Do Not Reply '***' \n\n\n
 Regards \n DBA. \n

echo -n -e "\nEnter how many files : "
read no

echo -n -e "\nEnter First Name : "
read v1

email=`cat /apps12i/mail_ids.txt | grep -e $v1 `  # prints the mail id stored in mail_ids.txt
echo "E-Mail ID: $email"

if [ -z "$email" ] || [ "$email" = " " ]
                echo -n -e "\nRecipient not found !!!"
                echo -n -e "\nPlease Enter E-Mail id : "
                read email

if [ $no -eq "1" ]
