You could use a operating system comand an do it that, i have seen this done before which worked fine. You just need to be able to execute a zip program.

You can perform these tasks as below:

1. Export to CSV : can be performed by SSIS
2. ZIP : You can use shareware tools like 7-zip command line and use the command like 7za.exe ....
3. Mail the file by using the SQL server's Database Mail utility. To know more about how to configure database pls check this post:
