MAILX question

Hello, I am using the following mailx command wich works well. I want to also include output from a log file in the mail body. How can this be done?

echo `date +"%m/%d/%Y %T"` "$P: The Purge Routine Has Started." | mailx -s "The Purge RoutineHas Started: `date`" $EMAIL

This script is sending it's output to PurgeArchiveDir.out, which I want to include as output in the body of the mail.

Thank you.

easiest way without too much of code change would be :

uuencode PurgeArchiveDir.out PurgeArchiveDir.out|mailx -s "`date +%m/%d/%Y %T` $P: The Purge Routine Has Started." $EMAIL

This would put the purge has started message in the subject and attach the logfile ...

Hope this helps ....
