This is how you would do it :

# uuencode <file_to_be_sent> <uuencoded_file_name> | mail <username>

When the <username> receives the email, invoke mail, go to the header # matching the mail that got sent out and save the message. Then from the command line :

# uudecode <saved_file_name> will give you the original file
