Kmail

Recommended Posts

I hope this one has a simple solution.

 

I want to send a folder as an attachment instead of a number of files. I do not know if it can be done or if it is possible then just how it is done. I have gone right through kmail and cannot find a way.

 

Any assistance appreciated.

 

Cheers. John.

Hello Jboy.

1. Thanks. :thumbs:

 

2. That makes sense. Thanks I will do that. I'll need to use zip because I am sending to Windows users. They wouldn't know what the heck a tar.gz is even if it smacked them in the face. :lol2::lol2::lol2:

 

In the meantime does anyone else have some additional ideas ???.

 

Cheers. John.

Hi, AussieJohn,

winzip , 7-zip and power archiver on Windows can read tar.gz at the moment. I am not sure if there is a bundled Windows application to read archives, but your recipients can install one of those for free.

 

That will make them 1 step closer to migration to Linux :)

To be safe I'll suggest that yuo send them as zip-files, cause that if they don't have a thirdparty archive software installed, they can't open anything els than zip-archives. :D
