1 users found this article helpful

WinZip Express for Outlook will enable you to successfully send files that are too large for Outlook. In WinZip and other of the WinZip Express add-ons, this type of sending is referred to as sharing.

Note: WinZip Express for Outlook requires an installed and registered version of WinZip 18.0 or later.

When installed with Microsoft Outlook 365, 2016, 2013, or 2010; WinZip Express for Outlook will examine the size of your attached files. When that size is over the configured threshold (the default is 5 MB), your attachments will be zipped, uploaded to your selected cloud service, and a link to the Zip file will be placed in your email message. The recipient of your email will be able to click the link and download the file you sent (shared).

To begin to configure the add-on's default actions, click Options on the Express drop down menu. In the WinZip Express Options' dialog that opens, you can then choose the features you will most often want to use. In most cases, such as with conversions, you will be able to configure settings for the feature and how the feature will be used. Please see the picture and descriptions below.
