We are trying to send a mail with CSV file attachments with some content in the file. The CSV file length is 4000 bytes. The mail is being sent but the attachment is empty.

Can somebody let me know what is going wrong?

Yup, it's that squashed ant on the screen given the information that you have (not) given.

How are you doing the attachment? MIME or something else?
What do your SMTP statements look like? Do you have the right boundary values in the right places? You are not attempting to esceed the limit of 998 bytes per line in your email, right?

You have actually provided us with NOTHING that can help. Making general statements without details, such as you've done so far, do not give us anything since (usually) the details are where the problem is.

Sending a .CSV Data file to OUTLOOK as an Excel Spreadsheet attachment requires a single blank line to be inserted between the SMTP Header information and the data itself. Otherwise you end up with a blank Spreadsheet.

Hello David,
Welcome to the forum. :-)

I don't think a blank line is needed. Atleast it works fine without empty line on Outlook 2010 which I have.
The below JCL sends one line of data in CSV format properly in individual Excel cells.

Code:
//EMAIL    EXEC  PGM=IEBGENER                                   
//SYSUT1   DD  *                                                 
HELO lpar                                                       
MAIL FROM:<wells@wells.com>                     
RCPT TO:<wells@wells.com>                       
DATA                                                             
FROM: wells@wells.com                         
TO: wells@wells.com                           
SUBJECT: THIS IS A TEST EMAIL                                   
MIME-VERSION: 1.0;                                               
IMPORTANCE: HIGH                                                 
CONTENT-TYPE: TEXT/RICH TEXT;                                   
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: ATTACHMENT; FILENAME = TESTING.CSV         
ONE,TWO,THREE                                                   
.                                                               
/*                                                               
//SYSUT2   DD  SYSOUT=(B,SMTP)                                   
//SYSIN    DD  DUMMY                                             
//SYSOUT   DD  SYSOUT=*                                         
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*   


Also it is important to note that the topic is close to 3 years old.
