mailx every file in directory

Hi all,

I know how to use the uuencode/mailx commands to mail a single file within a directory, e.g.

uuencode file.dat file.dat | mailx joe.smith@mail.com

but now, i need to be able to mail every file within the directory with one command, any ideas?

thanks
Smilie
