if you have mpack installed on your linux-box, then use:
"mpack -s MySubject MyFile MyDeliveryAddress"

if you have uuenview installed use:
"uuenview -s MySubject -m MyDeliveryAddress MyFile"

otherwise use uuencode:

"uuencode MyFile MyFile | mail -s MySubject DeliveryAddress"
(really 2 times MyFile)

if you don't see an attachment at mailcity, but a lot of characters, then save that as text and use uudeview, to get your attached file!
you will get uuen/deview:
