How to send email HTML + PDF attachment?

I am attempting to write a script where I can pass in parameters ( to , from, the location of a pdf attachment ) and send an email that has HTML for the body content and a PDF as an attachment.

I have failed to achieve this with sendmail and mutt. I recently found this.

If there are any other ideas, let me know. I could do this with Java or another programatic language but wanted to try and do this from the command line in a bash shell script first.

echo "To: ${MAIL_TO}"
echo "Cc: ${MAIL_CC}"
echo "Subject: ${SUBJECT}"
echo 'MIME-Version: 1.0'
echo 'Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="aXs$dp%^xă#991"'
echo '--aXs$dp%^xă#991'
echo 'Content-Type: text/html\n'
awk '{print $0 "<BR>"}' ${MSG_BODY}
echo '--aXs$dp%^xă#991'
echo 'Content-Type: application/pdf; name="'$(basename $ATTACH)'"'
echo 'Content-Transfer-Encoding: uuencode'
echo 'Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="'$(basename ${ATTACH})'"'
uuencode ${ATTACH} $(basename ${ATTACH})
