in thread body content is missing while sending mail with attachment

Thanks roboticus. I have modified my function and now I'm able to get both body message as well as attachment in mail. Function Code:

sub sendmailto { $mailing_list = $_[0]; $subject = $_[1]; $message = $_[2]; $from = "naga.rajan@gmail.com" $attachment = `uuencode "/home/naga/testing-scripts/Packa +ge_Specification_Document.doc" "Package_Specification_Document.doc" open (MAIL, "|mailx -s "$subject\" -r $from $mailing_list"); print MAIL "Hi, \n"; print MAIL "\n"; print MAIL "This email was sent using an automated email syste +m. Please do not reply, or forward to this email otherwise your messa +ge will not reach your intended recipients. \n"; print MAIL "If you like to contact us pleas write to *UNIX Tea +m. \n"; print MAIL "\n"; print MAIL "Regards, \n"; print MAIL "UNIX Team \n"; print MAIL "\n"; print MAIL "\n"; print MAIL "$message"; print MAIL $attachment; close MAIL; }
If I paste  print MAIL $attachment; next to mailx  open (MAIL, "|mailx -s "$subject\" -r $from $mailing_list"); then body content is getting missed. If we paste before closing MAIL file handler then we are able to get both body message as well as attachment in mail.
