By on October 25th, 2008

Zipping files is the best way to compress file sizes while sending them through emails, but each and every time you receive a compressed attachment in the form of zip or rar files, you need to uncompress them to view the attached files.

Softwares like WinRAR and WinZip do have support for viewing text files without unzipping the, but to view images in a compressed file you need to extract it before you can view them.
