Is it possible to attach folders to emails?
I had this bright idea to send out a 40th party invite via email as a web function whereby one clicked on Invite and all the other functions and information where collated in a folder from where it would show the images.

So the initial job is done but having just tried to attach the htm file and the Folder, only the file attached itself. The Folder, it says, cannot be attached.

Is there a way round this?

Cheers.

You can attach zipped/compressed 'folders' to an email, so just zip up or put your existing folder and file into a compressed folder.
In XP, select the files, right click, send to, compressed folder.
People receiving the zipped folder would then just need to unzip it (in XP, right click, extract) to have them back in their original state.

Ok, it's kinda what I thought.

So, those without Winzip, will just have to go out and get it. I guess they will have to understand and get with the times if they want to come to the party! (a mixed bag of guests ranging from IT techies to old folk)

Thanks fella.

You won't need winzip on any computer with windows ME or XP as they are able to zip folders as standard. It is called compressed folders in those OS's but is exactly the same as zipping. As I said, right click, send to, compressed folder, and it is zipped without winzip. Only people still using win98 would need winzip.

Edit

People receiving the zipped/compressed file (ME and XP) just need to right click, extract all and it is unzipped.
