I don't see anything in 'man mail' that suggests mail could do this. I don't 
know about sendmail - it has a configuration option for "everything" :) , but 
may be more trouble than it's worth.

You could do as Shantanoo suggested w/ mutt; there are probably similar 
incantations for pine, elm, etc. Doing it from a shell script is probably 
possible if you're willing to do all of the mime stuff. However, I think I'd 
look at Perl... I think if you found the right package this would be fairly 
straightforward.

HTH,
