Dear All,

Example
-------

$ cat test.txt
Number     Name
------     ----
10        Prabhu
20        Srikanth
30        Sachi
40        Vijay
50        Girish

$ uuencode test.txt test.dat > test.dat

$ cat abc.txt test.dat > email.msg

$ mailx -s 'ETL Program Aborted' prabhu@abc.com < email.msg


The above script is working fine. I have received test.dat as attachment. But the size of test.dat was 190 Bytes.

So i want to zip the test.txt and using mailx i want to send out a mail with that attachement. how can i do this ?

Thanks in advance

Regards,
Prabhu.T
