Mail attachments getting corrupted...

Hi ,

Whenever I try to send mails with attachments to external email Id's the attachment is not encoded properly which appears along with body (text) of the mail.

The attachement is always getting corrupted. Can anyone please suggest a solution.

# 2  
How do you send the mail and the attachments? (mail, mailx, sendmail, uuencode?)
What mail client do you use (Windows? UNIX?)
