how to compress multiple files into one for send-email script attachments

Post

     In the FMP answers page there's a description of how to send multiple files as part of the send email script. 

     http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/323/kw/multiple%20file%20attachments

     But the article doesn't explain how to compress multiple files into a single one. Anyone know how to make filemaker do this?

      

     In my case I want the user to just tap on the iPad, and behind the scenes five excel spreadsheets are made. Instead of having to send him five emails I'd rather have it just send one email with a zip file attached which contains the 5 xlsx files.
