The uuencode program simply converts binary data files into ASCII text
with limited line lengths. It is up to your Mail User Agent (MUA) to
attach it. If "mailx" is the command you use, then you need to learn how
to attach the uuencode output to your mail. That said, most MUAs
nowadays will automatically encode binary files for you and the
recipient will have their MUA decode it. All automatically.

Also, I don't use mailx. I use either Thunderbird or a browser.
Sorry I could not be more helpful.
