Version 3.0

Version 3.0 of WinZip Courier (formerly called WinZip E-Mail Companion) significantly expands on the capabilities of older versions:

  • Microsoft Office 2010 support: Now you can instantly zip and e-mail the documents you are working on in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and you can save your current document as a Zip file.
  • Microsoft Office Ribbon UI integration:WinZip Courier's new UI is designed to plug right into the Outlook and Office 2010 and 2007 ribbon UI as well as the Outlook and Office 2003 toolbar UI.
  • Zipx advanced Zip file compression including JPG compression: WinZip Courier 3.0 allows you to choose between "legacy" Zip 2.0 compression (compatible with any Zip file utility) and "Zipx" best compression, which provides the best Zip file compression (and a special compression method for JPG files) but requires a compatible Zip file utility such as WinZip 12.0 or later.
  • Image resizing: Save even more space when sending pictures. Resize photo attachments when zipping so your high-resolution pictures send faster and fit standard computer screens
  • Zip file preview: See the content of Zip file attachments in Microsoft Outlook 2010's preview window (also Outlook 2007) with the Zip file previewer. Double click on a file in the Zip file previewer for Microsoft Outlook to open it for viewing
  • Password-based AES encryption: Use strong passwords or passphrases to protect your confidential information from unauthorized access with WinZip Courier's 128-bit or 256-bit AES encryption. Auto-wipe ('shred') temporary files using the U.S. Department of Defense standard (DoD 5220.22-M) to prevent misuse. Works with WinZip's password policies. Configure your password requirements in WinZip and WinZip Courier automatically enforces them when requesting a password.
  • Enterprise support: MSI installation allows enterprise administrators to easily customize and roll out WinZip Courier to their employees' desktops.
  • Update checking: Automatically check for updates to WinZip Courier. Whenever you start Outlook, if there is an update, you will be notified.
  • Alternate extensions: The alternate extension feature makes it easy for you to e-mail your zipped attachments to recipients whose e-mail security does not allow attachments with the ".zip" extension. Simply specify an alternate extension, and it will be used instead of ".zip".
  • Improved support of Word e-mail editor: The WinZip Courier ribbon or toolbar is available in e-mail messages being edited with the Word e-mail editor.
