Feature requests

Hi -- I use Keka to zip files for sending via the Mac's Mail app because of its atrocious attachment handling.

One thing Keka does is to "double dot" extensions when creating zips, which causes attachments to be removed by receiving virus scanners. For example

example.pdf

... when automatically zipped by Keka becomes example.pdf.zip. Just removing the first dot (examplepdf.zip) will fix this, as would removing the extension when zipping (example.zip). At the very least this should be an option in preferences.

Also, if I can request a feature it would be AWESOME if Keka had a feature to zip and then automatically create a new mail with the zip attached. But I realise this is a big ask. It can probably be done via an automator action, I know. If anybody has any suggestions I'd love to hear.

Actually both are great ideas.

I've created two tickets for this:
