I need to send a folder as an attachment in an email but hotmail & yahoo wont allow folders only files.
Is there a way i can send folders by email?

Right click on the folder, 'send to compressed file'(me, win 2000, xp has this} then add the compressed folder to your email.

My friend told me he couldnt open zipped attachment, he said he got message saying the file was corrupeted, i tried a few times & kept getting it, panda is ok but the other person needs to download to, is there any other way i can do this?
I dont want the other person to have to download some program to open.

As jimv7 says, why not just zip them up into one folder using Winzip (or something similar) and then send that to your friend (or have I missed soemthing here?).

All he/she has to do then is unzip them and Bob is your mother's brother!

HI, I have very recently used jimv7's method for the first time, works great. No unzipping is need, when recipient clicks on the Zip-file it just opens in a folder and this is then simply opened in the normal way. No need to use Winzip, it is all auromatic.

automatic ... not auromatic - smells nice tho :-)

Um - but when I try that all I get in the e-mail is a .lnk file (with the little arrow), which i assume is just a shortcut to the folder.

Mind you it might be something to do with TUGZip, which I have recently installed as there are all sorts of other options as well when I right click (when I have a bit more time I'll have to investigate further!).
