Sending a file as an attachment to email

The file is located under appl/batchdata/
file name: storesales.txt
I am using following code because uuencode is not present. I am not getting the data in file but i am getting the blank file with same name as an email attachment.
Code:
( echo "from: sch@xxxx.com"
  echo "to:sch@xxxx.com"
  echo "subject:Store Sales Feed Commission Report for $TODAYDATE"
  echo "mime-version: 1.0"
  echo "content-type: multipart/related; boundary=xxxRANDOMSTRINGxxx"
  echo
  echo "--xxxRANDOMSTRINGxxx"
  echo "content-type: text/plain"
  echo
  echo "Store Sales Feed  for the previous day is listed below:"
  echo
  echo "--xxxRANDOMSTRINGxxx"
cd /appl/batchdata/outgoing/commission/dev/
  echo "content-type: text; name=storesales.txt"
  echo "content-transfer-encoding: base64"
  echo
  openssl base64 <mail.success ) | /usr/lib/sendmail   -t -i "sch@xxxx.com"

As I recall, you need a mime divider after the base 64 to satisfy that layer. Mime can frame unencoded files, too, 3/4 the length.

Try this code if you want to send file: storesales.txt as attachment:
Code:
{
        echo "From: sch@xxxx.com"
        echo "To: sch@xxxx.com"
        echo "MIME-Version: 1.0"
        echo "Subject: Store Sales Feed Commission Report for $TODAYDATE"
        echo 'Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="-q1w2e3r4t5"'
        echo "---q1w2e3r4t5"

        echo "Content-Type: text/plain"
        echo "Content-Disposition: inline"
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5'
        echo "Store Sales Feed  for the previous day is listed below:"
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5'

        cd /appl/batchdata/outgoing/commission/dev/

        echo "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; name=storesales.txt"
        echo "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=storesales.txt"
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5'
        cat storesales.txt
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5--'
} | /usr/lib/sendmail -t
