Within Chest (Quarantine)? Right click it and choose the proper option.

Compress the sample (.rar not .zip) then put a password "infected" and resubmit it from Gmail, that works.

or 7zip.....
you need to use a zip program that encrypt the content, so that gmail will not be able to see that it contain a .exe file

Yes but not in ".zip" you need to compress things in ".rar" otherwise it does not work ..

Then he should use WinRar (I'm just saying this to him to be able to submit samples from Gmail (.exe)).
