Issue on sending a mail with attachment using unix script ?

Below is my code and is working fine and there is a issue in the attachment, the attachment file printing as a text-encripted message in the mail draft box instead of putting as a attachment
(cat $msg; uuencode $attach1 in1.txt ; uuencode $attach2 in2.txt ) | mailx -s "subject" mail_addr@domain.com

here $msg mail draft/text file with path
$attach1 & $attach2 are attachment file with path

please help!

I have tried using
(cat $msg; uuencode $attach1 in1.txt ; uuencode $attach2 in2.txt ) | mailx -m -r "subject" mail_addr@domain.com
and its working fine now...

Thanks!
