Automatically ZIP all outbound attachments from an Exchange 2000 Server.

I've only found one tool that does it.  Anyone have any other suggestions?

You can find a number of compression tools for client and server at http://www.slipstick.com/addins/compression.htm ... SurfControl is widely used from what I understand but you don't see too many people using autocompression, at least I haven't ... I'd be leary of this type of implementation (I'm biased against integrating 3rd party utilities with mail transfer, outside of highly tested AV software ... which still isn't all that great but a necessity) ... that being said, I'd consider using something on the client that autozips outbound files and leave the inbound as is ... just adds more complexity when something goes wrong ...

btw ... whatever you choose ... make sure it doesn't break or cause issues with your AV software or vice versa ...

I don't know about anyone else... but I block zip files and force the users to request them from quarantine. Kept the sites clean. You will be presuming that everyone you send emails to has a tool to extract the files...

We strip encrypted (pwd protected) zip files as a standard ... too many virus types using zip files these days ...

We only allow .zip in - nothing else, and they have to be unencrypted.

Yes, I expect in 2004 that everyone has access to decompression tools, they've only been around since 1983. =)
