Gmail declines e-mails with archive in attachments

We have discovered that some e-mails with attached .zip files sent by us to addresses are returned with a delivery error. Returned messages contain the following information in the message body:

Gmail won't accept these types of files even if they are sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz) format. If this type of message is sent to your Gmail address, it is bounced back to the sender automatically.

Please note this if you provide and send screens of errors, documents and other types of attachments in a zipped format. Use another format to archive your files (with another file extension), for example WinRAR program.
