    still getting the same error ...

    If by "... the same error ..." you mean
        Can't exec "/usr/bin/mailx uuencode $zipfile $zipfile -r -s": No such file or directory at ...
    then you haven't read and/or understood poj's reply.

    Use double-quotes to interpolate the  $zipfile string into the  $emailcmd string:

    c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -le "my $home = $ENV{'HOME'}; print qq{>$home<}; ;; my $zipfile = qq{$home/}; print qq{>>$zipfile<<}; ;; my $emailcmd = qq{/usr/bin/mailx uuencode $zipfile $zipfile -r -s}; print qq{>>>$emailcmd<<<}; " >IsWhereTheHeartIs< >>IsWhereTheHeartIs/<< >>>/usr/bin/mailx uuencode IsWhereTheHeartIs/ IsWhereTheHeartI +s/ -r -s<<<
    Maybe see discussion of  qq// et al and interpolation in perlop. (Basic problem is with string interpolation and not with existence of a file.)

    Give a man a fish:  <%-{-{-{-<
