Configuring WinZip Courier

WinZip® Courier provides two methods of configuring how it should operate. You can set options that affect all email messages using the WinZip Courier Options window. You can also set messages on a per-email basis directly on the new email message window on either the ribbon or the toolbar, depending on what version of Outlook that you are using. For more information on the WinZip Courier options available on the ribbon or toolbar in Outlook, please see the help for the ribbon or toolbar.

The WinZip Courier Options window provides options that specify how WinZip Courier should operate in Outlook, Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo! Mail. You can specify the zipping method, control how the Zip file attachments are named, and much more.

In WinZip Courier 7, the WinZip Courier Options window looks like this; previous version will look different and may not have the same options:
