Add this on top of your html file

Code:
 
To: To mail id
From: From mail id
Subject: Sub 
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html

send the mail using following command

Code:
 
cat htmlfile | /usr/lib/sendmail -t

replace
Code:
cat $genhtml | /usr/ucb/Mail -s "$SUBJECT" `cat $MAILTO`

to
 
cat $genhtml | /usr/sbin/sendmail address@example.com

sendmail supports html
