MAIL, SMTP, MIME, and attachments?

The Question is:

I want to send a SQL generated text file to Lotus Notes on my pc.  When I run
 the command:
$mail/subject="TEST" filename useraddress
the file contents are sent as the mail message not as an attachment.  Articles
 wiz_1332 and wiz_1770 are similar to this.  You said add the text file to the
 end of the mail message and send it, how do you do this.
Thank you

The Answer is :

  You can add the file by literally, simply, and directly adding the
  text file to the end of the mail message, and sending it all.
  If you wish to use MIME (which is how various mailers send attached
  files), please upgrade to V7.2 or later, please acquire the current
  MIME ECO kit, please check the provided MIME utility documentation,
  and please check for the correct setting of the SFF stuff for the
  TCP/IP Services V5.0A documentation.
  In addition to topics 1332 and 1770, also please see 1341 and 2180.
  Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center directly.
