"ZIP" of File Attachments in Outlook

By CLT-IT_Tech ·
User tells me that when they email more than one attachment Outlook2003 creates a "zip" file and receipient can't get it due to security system. When I send a group of attachments, they all appear seperately to the receipient. Is there a setting in Outlook that is causing my user their result?

I don't believe that OE2003 automatically "zips" anything. You always have that ability by right clicking anything, and choosing "Add To Zip (FILENAME)", or just plain "Add To Zip" to start a new one......

Why doesn't the client get winzip, and the files will open as soon as double clicked?

I know of no security or permission options in XP Home, XP Pro, or 2000. Unless where your client is, they running Windows 2003 Server, and/or some versions of Exchange Server had auto-encryption settings on file attachments as well.....

More info required please....
