  1. Hi,

    I was wondering whether you can allow attachment of 7z files as well, usually I found 7z to be much better option than winzip; and at times its better compression can result in relatively smaller compressed file; which in turn may be handy while posting e.g. several dump files (while staying in the prescribed size limit) on the forums. Regards

    Not a problem, it's done.

    I should add, I was seeing similar improvements with 7zip compressed files versus winzip, but in more recent versions of the latter they seem to be back on track, so the difference should be minimal. 7zip has still got the advantage of being a free open source app nonetheless.

    Thats wonderful; thank you Julio.

    I haven't tried Winzip in a while; but I will have a look at it perhaps, although frankly speaking I am very much satisfied with 7zip :)
