WinZip Computing Announces Beta of WinZip® E-Mail Companion 2.0


WinZip Computing, a Corel Company (NASDAQ:CREL; TSX:CRE), today announced the public beta of WinZip® E-Mail Companion 2.0, a new application that makes it easy to zip out-going e-mail attachments, saving transmission time and disk space for both the sender and recipient. And, if attachments are sensitive, users can easily protect them with advanced AES encryption.

Available now for download from, WinZip E-Mail Companion 2.0 Beta is the follow-up to the original WinZip Companion for Outlook® 1.0. WinZip E-Mail Companion 2.0 Beta adds support for popular email clients Microsoft® Outlook® Express, Microsoft® Windows® Mail (Windows Vista™), and Outlook 2007 to existing support for Outlook 2002 and 2003.

WinZip E-Mail Companion 2.0 includes new compression options, the ability to Zip-and-Encrypt from within Microsoft Office (Word, Excel® and PowerPoint®), improved file naming and a variety of other enhancements that make the encryption and compression of email attachments easier and faster than ever before.

“WinZip E-Mail Companion directly addresses two critical trends in email: an increase in the average size of e-mail attachments and increasing concern over, and legal requirements regarding, the confidentiality of electronic communication,” said Edwin Siebesma, President of WinZip Computing. “WinZip E-Mail Companion is a simple and inexpensive solution for accountants, attorneys and other professionals, as well as home users, who want to protect the confidentiality of attachment content sent via email.”

WinZip E-Mail Companion 2.0 is also an essential tool for anyone whose attachment size limits prevent them from distributing large attachments. Growing confidentiality concerns and increasing average e-mail attachment size are key trends driving continued demand for WinZip.
