Sending attachments using mailx

Here goes...
I am trying to send attachments using mailx. I am able to send one file using this command

uuencode /home/mike/filename filename | mailx -s test

this works fine.

I found this command today off a website and I was wanting to know if this should work. If this is supposed to work, I am getting permission errors when I try to execute this command...

(uuencode /home/mike/filename filename; uuencode /home/mike/filename2 filename2) | mailx -s test

This is all a learning expierence for me so be gentle!
