You can attach compressed/zip folders to your message just like files you do in all web based email services. Let us see how to that...

Right-click on the folder or file , select "Send To" and then "Compressed Zip folder" as shown below

Today I have opened my MS Outlook Express. I was put out and didn't know what to do next,because of my emails had been corrupted. Luckily I used the Internet and noticed there an interesting software - outlook express e-mail recovery. The program determined my trouble for a minute and completely easy. I am very glad now...

Yeah, that's great for zipping & sending a folder with WinZip but the receiver has to have WinZip to open the folder and that costs $$.

That's a great way to send a folder. But it's a bummer that the receiver has to purchase WinZip to open it.
