That won't work, not in my experience anyway
you need to do:
uuencode filename filename_to_appear_in_email | mail user at domain
uuencode mypic.jpg picture_of_me.jpg|mail jerry at indigo.ie
This would mail the file named ``myippic.jpg'' as ``picture_of_me.jpg`` to jerry at indigo.ie
According to Donncha O Caoimh:

>> where FILE is the file to send, and USER is the user to send to.
