When using the LIST form of system() the first argument is the program to run, the rest of the arguments are the parameters for the program. I can almost guarantee you don't have a program called /usr/bin/mailx uuencode $zipfile $zipfile -r -s on your system. You probably have /usr/bin/mailx however. The other parts (uuencode $zipfile $zipfile -r -s) need to be passed as parameters to mailx.
my @emailcmd = ('/usr/bin/mailx', 'uuencode', $zipfile, $zipfile, '-r' +, '-s'); #and later my @args = (@emailcmd, $subject, $recipient); system(@args) == 0 or die "system @args failed: $?";

This is of course assuming that the command /usr/bin/mailx uuencode -r -s Subject Recipient indeed works on the command line.
