Zip?

Collect the documents you need to send in a new zip file and attach the single zip file.

Right-click on the Folder containing the docs, then go to Send to ... and then left-click on Compressed (Zipped) Folder.

The compressed Folder will then appear in your My Pictures folder. Compose your email in the normal way and then add the Compressed Folder (from My Pictures) as an Attachment to the email. Then Send as normal.

i tied "yousendit"- that too seems like you cant send a folder...

i tried zipping- but my HD wont allow it as supposedly i perhaps might not have enough space... which is not correct- well not on that drive anyway
