Did you ever get an e-mail returned as undeliverable because the attachment
exceeded the size limit of your (or your recipient's) e-mail service? Does it
sometimes feel that it takes forever to send e-mails with large attachments? Are
you concerned that someone other than your intended recipient may see the
confidential information contained in your e-mail attachments? If you're like

Achieve optimal file compression to ensure that your e-mail attachments are as
small as possible. This is especially helpful when you're trying to send files
that may otherwise exceed the maximum size allowed by your (or your recipient's)

send and receive your e-mail, and minimize the amount of space required to store
e-mails with attachments.
File Exclusion List
You can save time by excluding designated file types from WinZip E-Mail
Companion's automatic compression option. You can also set a file size filter so
that WinZip E-Mail Companion doesn't compress single files smaller than the
limit you set.
Password-based AES Encryption
Use strong passwords or passphrases to protect your confidential information
from unauthorized access with WinZip's 128-bit or 256-bit AES encryption.
Alternate Attachment Extension
Automatically change the file extension used for your compressed attachments to
prevent some e-mail services from blocking them.
Legacy Zip 2.0 Support
If your recipient has an older version of WinZip, he or she may not be able to
open Zip files created with WinZip's AES encryption or advanced compression
methods. Therefore, WinZip E-Mail Companion allows you to create compressed and
encrypted attachments using the Zip 2.0 standard. Using Zip 2.0 compression
ensures that any version of WinZip (or other standard Zip utility) can open the
Microsoft Office Integration
Save your file as a Zip file or send your file as a compressed e-mail attachment
directly from within Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint.

WinZip E-Mail Companion requires that Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003,
Outlook 2007, Outlook Express 6.0, or Windows Mail 6.0 be installed on your
system with Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista.
These requirements only apply to the computer system where WinZip E-Mail
Companion is installed. Recipients of your e-mail messages do not need WinZip
E-Mail Companion and can use any e-mail program to read your e-mail. To open and
extract the compressed Zip files, your recipient will need a Zip file utility
such as WinZip or WinZip Pro.
