Need to automatically upload a team weekly report to confluence using a cron job in linux

We have a script to automatically create a team report based on individual entries, which runs once every week via a crontab command in linux. We want to upload the contents of the report to confluence for tracking future reference. I created a filelist confluence page which gives me an email id for the page : If I use the linux mail command in my cron script, the report comes as a binary file with some random name. I need to upload this report to confluence as a text file with proper file name (date tag may be). Please help.

How is the command are you using to send email? 

Did you try this?

mail -s "your subject report" < path-of-your-report

Thanks, this works.

It adds it as a child page in required main page.
