A question we get a lot. How do I resolve the problem of emailing large files? Our recommend solution is 7-Zip. Why use 7-Zip over WinZip or the native Windows option?
How to create and email a zip file you ask?
Select the files you wish to email
Option 1: Right click on the selected files and select 7-Zip – Compress to “temp.zip” and email
Your default email program will open automatically with the zip file already attached.
Option 2: Right click on the selected files and select 7-Zip – Add to archive
This option will allow you to customize your zip file. You can add a password, encryption, split into volumes, and change the name. This file will be saved on your computer which you can then add as an attachment to an email.
