    To create a zip file, highlight a file or folder and option-click (or right-click) then pick "compress". To open a zip file, simply double click it and the contents are placed in the current folder or a folder is created with the contents inside depending on whether the zip file has folders inside.

    There is no need for third party add-on, freeware, shareware, or commercial software to deal with zip files on OS X.

    If it's in an email you should be able to "save as" and then browse to it in finder and click it.
