Here at eWEEK, I attach the multiple Microsoft Word documents that make up a review to e-mails that are sent to and from my Labs colleagues and editors. Using WinZip Companion for Outlook lets users like me save a considerable amount of space when e-mailing attachments, while keeping like documents grouped together. In my tests, I reduced an e-mail message with eight attached Word documents from 256KB to 58KB using the tool.
