[mrtg] Unix command line e-mail with attachments

I run MRTG on a RH 7.1 computer, monitoring mostly my main router and our
backbone switches.  I built the web portion of it with security - the world
can see my home page and get an idea of my total bandwidth, but anything
else requires a username and password.  I want to keep that part as simple
as I can - it's not tied to my NT domain at all.

Anyway, now one of my customers wants to see the stats that his computers
are using, however I don't want to give him the username/password to see the
whole site.  I ALSO don't want to re-engineer the security on the web site,
cause it works very well, and I understand it :)

So, what's a body to do?  I have just discovered the most awesome commands,
mail and/or sendmail, which work kinda like blat does for NT.  I can get
them to send me an e-mail message just fine.  What I want is to send an
E-mail with an attachment from the command line, and I didn't find anywhere
in the man mail or man sendmail pages where I could do this.  Any one got
some help for me?
