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

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.
