Why not try compressing it? Zip and StuffIt files can both be sent over
the net as binary data, which bypasses the various nasties which can
corrupt the document. Although it won't be quite as easy as straight
mail, it _will_ get the file there intact, and with the added plus of
being compressed to save bandwith.
Hope this little tip helps...
