How to Email Folders With Lotus Notes

Lotus Notes is an email program from which you can send and receive emails, as well as send files and attachments via the Internet. Folders have always presented an interesting, if sometimes frustrating, challenge when emailing, because they are quite large. However, you can easily attach a folder and email it through Lotus Notes by compressing the folder before you attach it. Zipping a folder or file can reduce the size greatly.
