Sending an Email with Attachments in HP-UX

While doing other stuff, I just tried to mail a file as I think this can be handy for my future needs.

[vinson:root]/root # uname -a
HP-UX vinson B.11.23 U ia64 2575904424 unlimited-user license
[vinson:root]/root # cd /var/adm

I need my backspace to delete so I used this - after typing "stty erase" simultaneously press CTRL + BAKCSPACE on the keyboard and hit ENTER.

[vinson:root]/var/adm # stty erase ^?

This is where the main part of course, how to send an email with attachments.

[vinson:root]/var/adm # uuencode new.secrets new.secrets | mailx -m -s "Send email to MMOND" mmond@nn.com
[vinson:root]/var/adm # tail -f /var/adm/syslog/mail.log

I also read this article about how to do it if we need multiple files though I haven't tried it myself.
