Hi all,

string subfol = Session["inbpostedfol"].ToString();
           string fullpath = Server.MapPath("~/InboxFiles/" + subfol);
           FileInfo flie = new FileInfo(fullpath);
           Response.ContentType = "application/zip";
           Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + subfol + ".zip");
           using (ZipFile zipfile = new ZipFile())
               zipfile.AddSelectedFiles("*.*", subfol, fullpath);
