uuencode - mailx attachment

[ Edited ]

I am trying to send some attachment using the following command:

uuencode /location/file.csv filename.csv|/usr/bin/mailx -s "Subject" $EMAIL

It is sending the email with the attachment but the attachment does not conatin any data.

The file is present in the "location" specified and it contains data.

Please help.

Thanks,
Anand

Shalom,

Your smtp gateway server is capable of chewing up the attachment and causing this problem.

Re: uuencode - mailx attachment

Thanks Steven,

I am able to send the proper attachment If I execute:

uuencode /location/file.csv filename.csv|/usr/bin/mailx -s "Subject" $EMAIL

from the command line.

It somehow does not seem to work properly from the script.

Anand,

Check that the user executing the script has read permission for /location/file.csv.

Re: uuencode - mailx attachment

Specify file's full pathname in the uuencode part and add "-m" switch to mailx:

uuencode /location/file.csv /location/file.csv | mailx -m -s "Subject" $EMAIL

hope it helps

I think my script will work for you. I've never had anyone come back and say it doesn't work. Its in production on probably every continent where there are HP-9000 servers.

Re: uuencode - mailx attachment

Thanks for all the response.

I have found out the issue in my perl script from which I was trying to email the output.

I did not close the filehandler before sending the mail.

I have corrected the issue and it works fine now.
