I guess you didn't read the man page for sendmail.

The second paragraph says:

| Sendmail is not intended as a user interface routine; other programs
| provide user-friendly front ends; sendmail is used only to deliver
| preformatted messages.

I suggest you use pine, elm, or mutt instead, or just uuencode the
file instead.

This really should be part of the FAQ...
