That's one possiblity, but if John's phrase "brought out the 
sledgehammer" implies what I think it does, he might have some 
trouble with the admins if they realize he's shipping exes around via 
the back door. (Depending on how paranoid they are, it's not hard to 
monitor the email for things that look like large binary files.)

Also, it sounds from what he says as though they may already *be* 
blocking all large binaries - changing the extension to .doc didn't 
get it through.

I think it's probably simpler to get some FTP space somewhere and 
email the link.
