On-demand single-click on-the-fly PDF conversion for IBM Notes attached files.

With its astounding and unique abilities to reduce the volume of the attached MS Office XML files (DOCX, PPTX and XLSX), Open Office XML files (ODT, ODP, ODS) and of the picture files (JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, EMF, WMF, TIF, TIFF), while keeping them in their native formats, ZipMail V12 achieves unbelievable Notes/Domino volume reduction results never seen before, while remaining fully transparent to the IBM Notes users and their email recipients.

With its single-click PDF conversion feature, ZipMail enables all Notes users to drastically improve their IBM Notes usage in terms of attached files sent for read-only purposes.


Each time a user attaches files in IBM Notes, ZipMail automatically and transparently reduces the size of the attached files by performing on-the-fly Zip compression, XML (DOCX, PPTX, XLSX, ODT, ODP, ODS) optimization or Image (JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, EMF, WMF, TIF, TIFF) optimization.

Since attached files are responsible for up to 95% of most of the IBM Notes Notes organization traffic (and thus storage), ZipMail will reduce your needs for IBM Notes and Domino related network bandwidth and disk space by 50% or even more.

ZipMail also provides on-demand single-click on-the-fly attached file PDF conversion, enabling users to prevent easy modifications of their IBM Notes attached files by their recipients.

ZipMail, by transparently making IBM Notes attached files as small as possible, at the time they are attached by the users, delivers the following benefits:

  1. Instant source reduction of your IBM Notes / Domino email traffic by 50% or more.

  2. Huge network bandwidth and Domino server disk space savings.

  3. Very significant performance improvements for your entire IBM Notes / Domino organization with faster replications (greatly improving IBM Notes user satisfaction).

  4. Hosting more users on your existing IBM Notes / Domino infrastructures.

  5. Enable your IBM Notes users to send very large files that could not be sent if not compressed or optimized (for instance large PPT / PPTX MS PowerPoint presentations or DOC / DOCX MS Word files exceeding the maximum allowed attached file size).

  6. Huge and recurring IBM Notes / Domino operating cost reductions. Your savings increases whith the increase of your email traffic. If in three years from now your yearly email traffic and needs for email storage double, the savings delivered by ZipMail will double too.

  7. ZipMail enables you to defer heavy investments in network bandwidth and storage extensions for your IBM Notes / Domino infrastructure.

  8. ZipMail pays for itself within months.

Password rules can be defined to force the users to enter passwords having a minimum length and including a minimum number of numeral digits.
