Not sure how to "attach" something, but you could try the following to add a message to an email.Using 'cat' or 'more' to redirect the contents of your attachment into a variable that is piped to mail.

(the following command specifies both a return address and the sending address. They can be different if you so choose)

echo $MAIL_MESSAGE | mailx -s "Subject" -r $RETURN_ADDY $YOUR_ADDY
