Data Problem while sending message and attachment with mailx

Hi All,

I am trying to send a mail with an attachment and message. Following command I am using.

(cat <messagefile> ; uuencode <attachmentfile> <attachmentfile>)|mailx -s"Subject"

In the received mail, message body is appearing fine. But attachment is not coming. Rather content of attachment is appearing in the body of the mail in encoded format.

Please advise.

It is very close to being correct.

I would try:

( echo `cat <messagefile>` ; uuencode <attachmentfile> <attachmentfile>)|mailx -s"Subject"
