I noticed that on www.winzip.com you can either buy a Winzip product for Outlook (it does not work with Outlook Express)or a general Winzip product. Is it possible to buy the Winzip product to zip files and then send them via Outlook Express? Also, is anyone aware of any other disadvantages of Outlook Express as I may have to buy Outlook?

Thanks.

Sarah

No disadvantages as far as I know Jul 19, 2005

I didn't know there was a special version for Outlook. I used WinZip with Outlook Express for some years, but have more recently gone over to Mozilla Thunderbird as my email client. WinZip works well with both of these.

Just a suggestion... Jul 19, 2005

Hi Sarah,
Instead of starting a new thread, why not keep this one together with the one you just opened a while ago on WinZip, since both basically deal with the same topic. Even though I do not know if it can be done at this point.

I have used Winzip + Outlook Express (OE) for several years and have had no problems at all.
I now use the Win XP Pro built-in compressed file option with OE. No problems encountered over past several months for hundreds of messages sent by OE which include zipped files.

You can use WinZip with any e-mail program Jul 20, 2005

If by "Winzip product" you refer to the program that zips files, then yes, you can use it to zip files and send them using Outlook Express; but if by "Winzip product" you mean the program which is specifically designed to work with Outlook, then it'd be cautious.

Outlook Express is a simpler program which comes free with Windows. IMO it is a better e-mail program for several reasons, two of which are: it does not produce bloated mail archives like Outlook does; and you stand a better chance of importing or exporting mail to and from other mail program and other computers.

However, some industrial strength office administration programs can only work with Outlook and not directly with Outlook Express.
