Message Body while sending an email

I am making use of the following code to display the results of my txt file in an email:

Code:
mail -s 'Count Validation Test Comparison Results' Ronit@XYZ.com < Count_Validation_Results_`date +%m%d%Y`.txt

Email Output:
Code:
----------Query 1 Count Validation Results--------
Source count is 4
Target count is 3
Source and Target query counts DO NOT match

When I am trying to incorporate the message body, its not working as expected

Code:
echo " "########COUNT VALIDATION RESULTS FOR `date +%c`########" | mail -s 'Count Validation Test Comparison Results' Ronit@XYZ.com < Count_Validation_Results_`date +%m%d%Y`.txt

Actual output:
Code:
----------Query 1 Count Validation Results--------
Source count is 4
Target count is 3
Source and Target query counts DO NOT match
########COUNT VALIDATION RESULTS FOR Wed 25 Nov 2015 11:08:37 AM CST########

My desired output is:
Code:
########COUNT VALIDATION RESULTS FOR Wed 25 Nov 2015 11:12:29 AM CST########
----------Query 1 Count Validation Results--------
Source count is 4
Target count is 3
Source and Target query counts DO NOT match

Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks,
R

We're sorry it is not working too. It you tell us what operating system and shell you're using AND tell us what did happen when you tried Yoda's suggestion, we might be able to help you make it work.

Am I correct in assuming that you're not using a shell that understands Bourne shell syntax?

Code:
uname -a
Linux xldetl01 2.6.18-194.32.1.el5 #1 SMP Mon Dec 20 10:52:42 EST 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I am using bash script.sh to execute my bash script.

Please let me know if you need further info.

Thanks

What errors did bash print, if any?

What was in the mail that was sent?

What output do you get from the command:
Code:
od -bc script.sh
