Sending HTML email from bash

Has anyone been able to send HTML email from bash? I know that I could do it with PHP, but I'm trying to make the script without using any outside sources. If I have to, it's understandable.

Currently, I'm using mutt to send the file since I have attachments as well.

cat somefile.htm |mutt -s "subject" -a file.txt email@company.com

Which mail client you use in bash script?

I use mutt, but I figured out what I needed to do:

mutt -e "my_hdr Content-Type: text/html" -s "my subject" email@company.com < message.html
