Email with .dat file as attachment

Hi, I am trying to email a .dat file as an attachment from unix MS-outlook.

I tried uuencode but it is not attaching the file, rather it is placing some junk data in the body of mail. Below is my code

Code:
(cat Message.txt; uuencode  Attach_File.DAT Attch_File.DAT) | mailx -s "SUBJECT" glaveti@frk.com

Can anyone please help?

Thanks

Try converting the txt file to dos format, via unix2dos or similar, before using uuencode.

Hi,

I tried converting the file using unix2dos and sent the converted file, but still I am getting the file data as corrupted data in the body of the mail and the attachment is coming. This problem is only occurring for MS_Outlook.

Thanks
