Your Notes is probably configured to recognize uuencoded attachments. Other
mail systems are probably configured to recognize only mime. Try getting a mime
encoder, there's several in the public domain. Search on the internet.

you can use the attached program: mpack(See attached file: mpack)

hotmail does not support attachments!!


use mpack instead - it will do the MIME headers and encoding.

                l & h,

We use the MIME protocol to send attachments.
We have a perl script that utilizes the MIME
module for perl. We got it from the perl
resource kit.

If you obtain Perl-MIME and need help with
the script, I can send you a copy on Monday.
(Drop me a note). It is not convenient to
access my work server from home.


You could use pine or mutt. Mutt will do it from the command line:
mutt -a filename.ext -s subject

Get yourself a copy of mpack:

mpack/munpack MIME equivalent of uuencode/uudecode, free from

This is MIME standards compliant, and will present usable enclosures to any reasonable e-mail client (i.e, anything except mailtool).

This would be:

# mpack filename
