Here's how to create a zip file and email it with WinZip

Right click a file, set of files, folder, or combination and choose WinZip, Zip and Email. WinZip will automatically zip your file and launch your email application with the Zip file attached.

Alternatively, open WinZip and create a Zip by selecting files and/or folders from the Files pane and adding them to the Zip pane. Once added, the Actions pane will display your Save or Share Zip options. Here you can choose to email you file.

If your file is too large to email as an attachment, even after it’s zipped, WinZip can upload your file to one of your cloud accounts and place a link in your email. Click here to learn more about using WinZip and your cloud accounts to send large files.
