Web email attachments?

Do web email programs have the ability to add attachments? I zipped up a folder and attempted to send via web email as an attachment to myself as a test. I received the email but no attachment. I use Verizon. Does one absolutely need an email client for attachments? Or are web email programs limited in their support of attachment types. Thanks.

Forgot to mention the zipped folder was created using "Send to compressed folder" option.

Well did it say the attachment was removed at all. Sometimes depending on the size of the attachment it might get stripped if it's too large or if it contains certain file types like .exe

There wasn't any notice that the file was removed. It was a zipped file. I'm guessing my ISP doesn't let you send email directly from the server with a .zip attachment. They may think it's malicious. On the other hand, email clients can pick and choose what they want to send/receive. In that case, it's at the users discretion.
