Have you tried:

<param name="mailer-app" value="/usr/share/freeswitch/scripts/emailwav.sh"/>
<param name="mailer-app-args" value="whatever you want the script to see"/>

In other words, specify the "app" as the script name, and the "args" as the 
parameters you want to pass it.

This assumes that your script is executable by the freeswitch user and 
contains "#!/bin/bash" as the first line.
