Dear users,

We are pleased to introduce new generation of PAOP, now called PowerArchiver for Office. As you can see from name change, we have significantly expanded PAOP features to work in other Office applications: Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. Now you can compress, encrypt and send your documents directly from Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, saving some time from having to manually look for documents and send them in separate steps.

When it comes to Microsoft Outlook, we have significantly expanded the functionality by adding PowerArchiver tab with settings button to your Microsoft Outlook toolbar, making it easier to access those options. Additionally, compatibility with latest versions of Microsoft Outlook has been improved and we have added ability to send .PA format if you have PA 2017 installed.
