    there are multiple possibilities why if fails,
    assuming you OWN the server, have access to

    /etc/postfix/main.cf
    and all relevant config files

    check for allowed/disallowed file extensions
    check if attachments are allowed
    check for file size limits

    I use your a.m. procedure sometimes, but with a different syntax:

    cat /server_path_to_file.txt | mail -s "your subject line" recipient_email_address

    Good luck
