have you tried sending the email to yourself. Does the email go to your sent items folder once you sent ..

Let us know what happens when you send the attachment email to yourself .. Check the attachment size .. ISP maynot allow attachments to be sent more than certain size

Yes. email did not come thru... Yes. there are in the send folder of my outlook... Attachedment size is 30 KB...

Sunray is probably on the right track, but most likely its the blocking at the -receiving end-, not the sending end.  namasi_navaretnam, if you temporarily allow yourself to receive zip files (if you aren't working with an exchange server, where they can be blocked there), test by sending a zip file to yourself, and you receive it ok, then its the blocking that is in effect on the receivers' end (don't forget to reenable the zip blocking on your end!)  If its the blocking on the other end, you can't do much about that except if its a frequent occurance to setup an ftp site for upload and download, because most admins won't open up their exchange server for one user!  Good luck!

I could not find anything. I not not have an exchange server. I am just using MSN account thru Outlook.

BTW, I am not able to find updates to outlook 2002 within MS website. I will leave this issue open for few more days.

Thanks.

Did you try to send the email with the zip file to yourself?  If you did and you can receive it, you don't have a problem sending zip files.  Your receipient can't receive them.
