WinZip Express for Outlook

WinZip Express for Outlook will enable you to successfully send files that are too large for Outlook. In WinZip and other of the WinZip Express add-ons, this type of sending is referred to as sharing.

When installed with Microsoft Outlook 2016, 2013, or 2010; WinZip Express for Outlook will examine the size of your attached files. When that size is over the configured threshold (the default is 5 MB), your attachments will be zipped, uploaded to your selected cloud service, and a link to the Zip file will be placed in your email message. The recipient of your email will be able to click the link and download the file you sent (shared).
