Only attachments that were stored in compressed form (gzip, see the
[attachments] section in the .ini config) will be send to the target
in compressed form.

You can always verify it by yourself using a packet sniffer
(wireshark, tcpdump, tcpflow) - it's http and json, how easier could
it be?

If so, can anyone point me to any documentation where I can learn more about it (e.g. how
to set it up, what is configurable, and what is going on under the hood).
