I've been using the !mailx command for quite some time. Always the file I send ends up as
the body of the email.

!mailx -s "WORKORDERDETAIL OUT OF BALANCE" jdale@sfchronicle.com < &FNAME

Does anyone know how to use !mailx with an attachement? It will be a PDF file.

Thanks,
Jim

I have used elm to do this. I wasn't able to figure out how to do it with mailx. I call a Unix script from Webfocus

  
-SET &UNIXARG=&DEST.&N2 || ' "'|| &FILENAME || '" "' || &SUBJECT ||  '" "'  || &BODY || '"';
-UNIX dclnotice.send &UNIXARG


In the Unix script
 
MAILTO=$1
ATTACH=$2
SUBJECT=$3
BODY=$4 
WRKFILE=dclsend.wrk

echo " $BODY \n " > $WRKFILE 

echo "[include $ATTACH application/octet-stream base64 ] " >> $WRKFILE

cat $WRKFILE | elm -s "$SUBJECT" $MAILTO

Also, check out the 'mpack' command. You may have to download the source and compile it if it's not on your machine, but I use it all the time with great results.
