With RH6 use mailx -a "filename" to attach a file.

echo "Fixed text I want to say
More text
More text" > msg.txt
cat errorfilename >>msg.txt
mailx -s 'Subject goes here' -a "msg.txt"

Trying to d use the smtp protocol directly means you have to follow it scupulously - try the above approach first.
