You're using the same variable for both results, so the later command overwrites what the earlier did.
You need something like
$LatestTest = Get-ChildItem  E:\Test\logs ...
$LatestMain = Get-ChildItem  E:\MainLogs ...

Open in new window

and then
$attach = new-object Net.Mail.Attachment($LatestTest)
$message.Attachments.Add($attach)
$attach = new-object Net.Mail.Attachment($LatestMain)
$message.Attachments.Add($attach)

Open in new window

To get the latest file from a folder into $attachment, you can use this:
$attachment = Get-ChildItem C:\sendemail -Filter *.txt | Sort-Object -Property LastWriteTime -Descending | Select-Object -First 1 -ExpandProperty FullName
