The reason why you are getting junk in your attachment is because in the email header you specified base64 for encoding, but you are using uuencode.

Modify below header as highlighted:
Code:
echo "Content-Transfer-Encoding: uuencode"

The script should work after changing the encoding. Make sure the file that you are attaching is in the path where you are running this script.

You can also set xtrace/verbose and check what is happening.
