How do I send folders as an email attachment?

lrtedesco
I have tried to do this using Win-zip compression, but this causes problems for the recipient in printing these files. Zip Central is much more consumer friendly but still gives me the same problem. Any ideas?

    How does Winzip create printing issues? Anything that gets sent compressed will need to be uncompressed before you can do anything with it.

    Hi, you cannot email a folder without compressing it or somehow making it into a file,

    email clients can only send files. But as robo_dev requested, more detail of what is going on with zip files on the clients side would be good to know.

    7-zip is a free program that lets you password protect documents, zip it up and send the entire contents via email. Plus, 7-zip can open rar files and several other compressed programs.

    if the docs you are sending use fonts installed only on your system

    they will not print correctly on any other system

    even if you specify "No Compression"
    the docs will appear corrupted and not print correctly if the font(s) used
    are not installed on the system
