In addition to sending text messages, Microsoft Outlook 2000 can send attached files with your e-mail. Including an attachment in e-mail increases the file size of your message and can impact transmission speed and create network bottlenecks.
One way to decrease this negative impact is file compression. However due to mail standards Outlook does not compress file attachments.
The following third-party products that perform file compression are readily available.
BKZip 98 (Bernd Kemmlers)
MaX Compression (C2C Systems)
TurboZip (Pacific Gold Coast)
WinZip (Niko Mak Computing, Inc.)
ZipMagic (Mijenix Corporation)
ZipOut (MicroEye, Inc.)
