I have a zip file which is a ebook.

Its of size 30MB.

i want to mail it to my friend through gmail or yahoomail..(those are the only two mails accessible in my office).

i tried it through gmail, it says maximum file size limit is 25MB.

is there any way through which i can zip it further, to a smaller size, upload it and send thru gmail

i dont to upload it onto any severs like yousendit etc..

In short, i request you to suggest me a very good solution.

Also me tell me about an utility which will zip the folder to a very small size(other than winzip or winrar) in optimum time, so that it would be easy to mail things.

Thanks in anticipation

I use a free application 7-Zip, but I don't know if it will make your ebook any smaller.. :thumbsup:
