serach diff filename in diff location using shell scripting


I am new to shell scripting.

please help me to find out the solution.

I need a script where we need to read the text file(consists of all file names) and get the file names one by one
and append the date suffix for each file name as 'yyyymmdd' .
Then search each file if exists wiith the time stamp as filenam1_yyyymmdd in another directory, if exists send an email as success or not exists.
# 2  
while read filename 
      mv $filename $filename$(date +%Y%m%d)
      find /another/directory -type f -name $filename$(date +%Y%m%d) > /dev/null
      [ "$?" -eq "0" ] && echo "File Exists" | mail -s "Success" || echo "File not exists" | mail -s "Failed"
done < inputfile
