How you can send EXE files through Email

Although as discussed above Email Servers do not allow sending EXE files through Email. But there is a process to send EXE files in Emails. The user can change the extension of EXE file with the help of file compressor. File compressor will compress the file to different format which can be sent through Email. For instance I am using WinRAR to compress my files. WinRAR is commonly used software and freely available over the web.

How it Will Work?

Suppose If want to send an EXE file in Email then follow the steps below:

  • Install WinRAR on your system
  • Then right click on that EXE file you want to send in an Email
  • Click on “Add to Archive”
  • Make your desired changes if you want and click “OK”

After Archive has done you will see the file size of that Archived file will less than original file.

Now attach that archive file in Email and Send

Hope this will helps you.
