I don't have my JNOS system running right now but the memories aren't
too foggy and I think I can give you a couple ideas that may help out.
If you're using an external EMail client, like Outlook or Thunderbird,
talking to JNOS - you should be able to just attach the file as any
If you're strictly using JNOS and running from the JNOS console, I
think there's an option to ... (checking - didn't find it yet..
I'll keep checking... but there's another option and here's a clip
from the jnos manual.
*** From the JNOS manual:
mailmsg <to_addr> ["<subject>"] "msg";
Mail a message to <to_addr> from <msguser>@<Hostname>. <msguser>
can be set in the DOS environment (Set MSGUSER=<any_user_name>),
and defaults to "sysop" if not set in the environment. <subject> is optional,
and must be quoted if it contains whitespace characters. <msg> is either
a string to be placed in the body of the message (quoted if it contains white-
space characters) or the path to a file to be placed in the message body. A
path must begin with forward or backward slashes, or a drive specification,
otherwise it is taken to be a <msg> string. This command is available when
JNOS was compiled with MAILMSG #define'd.
Example: mailmsg n5knx "don't forget!" "replenish the Cardhu" at
0400 "mailmsg jpd at usl.edu /stats.out+"
