Have you tried searching the forum? This question is asked a lot.
# 3  
maybe this line could help:

# 4  

i tried as below.. but still now working ...
can u plz help me ...





uuencode /home/delta/dev/aa.doc | ${MAIL} -s "Configs" ${Mail_addr}

You need to specify the filename twice, as per Geller's example. However you should ojnly put the full path on the first one, e.g. uuencode /home/delta/dev/filename.doc attachmentname.doc.
# 6  
Here is something you can try..

Create one file called message.txt which has the body of the email message.

Create the attachment file. Lets call it attachment_file.txt

Now use the following commands:

/usr/bin/uuencode attachment_file.txt email_attachment.lst > attachment.txt

#concatenate message.txt and attachment.txt into combined.txt

cat message.txt attachment.txt > combined.txt

#email combined.txt file. this file has the body of the email and the attachment

mail -s "Message with Attachment" <YOUR EMAIL> < combined.txt
# 7  
Try this..

${MAIL} -s "health check" -a ${Mail_file} ${Mail_addr}

If you want to send the attachment with the mail body..

${MAIL} -s "health check" -a ${Mail_file} ${Mail_addr} < content_file
