WinZip Computing, a Corel Company, today announced WinZip® Courier™ 4.0, the latest version of its email plugin software that integrates with email applications and the WinZip ZipSend™ cloud-based delivery service to automatically zip, secure and deliver attachments up to 2 gigabytes. Effortless to use and easily managed by IT departments, WinZip Courier 4 saves companies time and storage space while securely sending files through e-mail servers or the cloud.

WinZip Courier 4 works with Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010 (32-bit and 64-bit) and webmail, including Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail and Gmail to zip attachments into smaller, manageable packages that are delivered faster without issues. Users can password-protect outgoing files containing confidential data with 128-bit or 256-bit AES encryption. In addition, WinZip Courier 4 wipes temp files to ensure the security of encrypted attachments.

When working with large files that exceed email size limits, WinZip Courier 4 can seamlessly connect to ZipSend, making it simple for anyone to send files up to 2 gigabytes directly from their email without requiring them to change the way they work.

Available in 13 languages, WinZip Courier 4 is ideal for organizations of any size from small businesses to large global companies. With support for Microsoft Installer (MSI) technology, WinZip Courier 4 can be quickly deployed over corporate networks.

New in WinZip Courier 4.0

  • Full 64-bit support: Designed for 32-bit and 64-bit systems, including both versions of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook, WinZip Courier 4 is the right choice for computing environments that employ both older and newer machines.
  • Background file upload: When using Microsoft Outlook to send large files through ZipSend, WinZip Courier 4 allows users to send the email and continue working, uploading files in the background and automatically sending the outgoing email when the upload is finished.
  • Faster zip technology: With a new Zip engine under the hood, WinZip Courier 4 provides smoother integration with email processes. Users can zip and deliver email attachments faster than ever before.
  • Extended language support: Ideal for multi-lingual work environments, WinZip Courier 4 is available in 13 languages including Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish.
