Can you compress Splunk reports before sending them as email attachments?

Legend

Hi at all,
I have the problem that, sometimes, some of my reports exceed the eMail attachment limits.
I could reduce the fields in report, but this isn't a good solution because, in this way, I don't satisfy the final customer and the problem could be still present.
I solved the problem by giving the customer the availability to manually run the report, but the customer wasn't fully satisfied.

Is there a way to compress (zip or tar) a report before sending it to the eMail system?
I think that this is an important feature and that it's strange that nobody has implemented it in Splunk.

Bye.
Giuseppe

I have to send a CSV file that is usually too large for eMail attachment, this App is only for pdf.
Is there another solution for csv than to create a script?

My solution bypasses email entirely. I think that you meant to put your comment under a different answer @cusello.
