It would be nice if you could clarify what's "not working" about it.

Anyway, as far as the MIME content, I don't see any BOUNDRY text in your message. If your intent is to send an email with an attachment, then it needs to look more like this:

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Possibly the biggesst waste of time on the forum is posting "It didn't work".

To get help you typically need to post what happened (diagnostic error, abend, etc) along with the submitted jcl and control statements. The less useful info you post initially means multiple interactions just to have us understand what your are facing.

What is the content of this dataset (OSMDEV.FTP.INPUT)?
Hope this helps,
