MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) - WinZip Computing, a Corel Company, today announced that the newly released WinZip® Courier™ now offers support for popular Webmail clients running on Internet Explorer (IE). By integrating directly into IE, the new update to WinZip Courier provides a seamless experience when compressing and encrypting attached files sent from Gmail™, Hotmail® and Yahoo!® Mail email accounts.

WinZip® Courier™: A Quick, Easy and Safe Way to Send Files

In addition to its support for Microsoft® Outlook® 2010 (32-bit), 2007 and 2003, WinZip Courier now integrates directly into Internet Explorer for use with Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail to automatically zip email attachments with optional password protection and efficient image resizing features. Users simply create a message, attach files as usual, and click "Send." Working behind the scenes without requiring any extra steps, Courier compresses the attachments into a single, small package before sending the email, so recipients get one convenient Zip file attachment.

"Sending large files is always a time-consuming task, whether they're sitting in your outbox in Outlook or you're using a Webmail client and have to sit and watch as each file tediously uploads," said Patrick Nichols, President of WinZip. "Now, with the latest update to WinZip Courier, users can enjoy the power of speedy and secure email attachments when sending a big presentation from their corporate Outlook account or a great photo to a friend from Webmail. With WinZip Courier, we're helping people be as productive and efficient as possible -- since there's no doubt, we can all benefit from faster email."

Single License, Multiple Email Accounts

A single license of WinZip Courier can be used across multiple email accounts on the same machine. Users can take advantage of automatic zipping and optional encryption to send files in Outlook, as well as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail Webmail systems running on IE, making WinZip Courier ideal for both business and personal use.
