Use sendmail(8) rather than mail(1).  mail(1) expects to be run from a user 
session and looks for the user's preferences stored in the user's ,mailrc 
file.  No user is available during the boot process.

In your script,

> #! /bin/sh

Also, try removing the space between "#!" and "/bin/sh".  It may be causing 
some weirdness.
