Email Sharing with WinZip

When using an email feature in WinZip, your file will be uploaded to a cloud service and a link will be sent, rather than the physical Zip file when it is larger than the configured size threshold. To use this feature, you must configure WinZip to use a cloud service either by adding it in the Files pane or by configuring it in the Settings tab of the ribbon.

WinZip can share by email when:

  • You use Zip and E-Mail from the Windows Explorer context menu.
  • You open an existing Zip file and click Share Using EMail on the Unzip/Share tab or you click Email in the Actions pane.
  • You use any of the WinZip Express features
