Zamzar Email Conversions
  • What is this ?
  • Email conversions are a way of converting files directly from your email account without needing to use the Zamzar website. This can be useful if you need to convert files from a mobile device or if you get sent a file to your email account which you can't open.

  • How do I use it ?
  • To convert a file via email with Zamzar just:

    1. Attach the files you want to convert to a new email, or forward an existing email.
      (You can attach as many files as you want, provided they are each below our size limits).

    2. Send the email to format@zamzar.com
      (Where format is the name of the file format you want to convert to)
    For example to convert a PDF file into a Word Document (doc file) just email your PDF file to doc@zamzar.com

    You can read our blog post announcing this tool or look at detailed instructions about how to use email conversions.
