WinZip Courier

WinZip® Courier - the compression utility for E-mail.

WinZip Courier makes it easy to zip (compress) the documents and other files that you attach to Microsoft Outlook. Zipping attachments saves transmission time and disk storage for both the sender and receiver of the e-mail.  WinZip Courier also allows you to send large files easily using the ZipSend file delivery service to anybody.

WinZip Courier helps you from within your Microsoft Office applications (Word, PowerPoint, and Excel), from within Outlook, and even from within Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo! Mail in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox. From Outlook, you can zip any attachment in a variety of different ways.  From your Office products, you can instantly zip and e-mail any document on which you are working or save the file as a Zip file.  From Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox, when you attach files to your emails in Hotmail, Gmail, and/or Yahoo! Mail, WinZip Courier will automatically zip your attachments. 

WinZip Courier is highly configurable and allows you to control exactly how it operates. You determine how the zipped attachments will be named, whether or not they are encrypted, the encryption method, and the compression method. In Outlook you determine which attachments are zipped, as well as how and when they are zipped.  You also determine when and if to use the ZipSend service to deliver your attachments.
