Folders and files in email attachment

Question : How can I send a folder that contains other folders and files as one e-mail attachments?

Answer : The easiest way is to install and use a compression program that will zip up the folders and files and attach the resulting compressed file to an e-mail message with one click on your part.

Most compression programs today - including WinZip (http://www.winzip.com) and WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com) - will install compression options on the right-click menu available from the Windows Explorer file manager. One of these options will be something along the lines of 'Compress and email.'

After you install the compression utility, just use Windows Explorer to navigate to the folder that contains the other folders and files you wish to e-mail, select the folder, and click your right mouse button. From the resulting pop-up menu, choose 'Compress and email.' You'll be prompted for a name for the compressed file - you can choose the default name - and perhaps a compression format. When you click OK, the program will compress the folders and files and launch an e-mail composition window with your compressed file attached. You just supply the e-mail address and click Send.

Your recipient will need a compression utility that can handle the compression format that you chose. Most Windows XP users - and many others - can handle the ubiquitous ZIP format, supported by both WinZip and WinRAR.
