Much as I dislike getting or giving "you asked for x, but here's how
to do it with y" I'm going to do so here.

Email is one of those things which is great for small files, and such,
but large transfers can cause issues at pretty much every aspect of
the trip. If you've already got a webserver running, add a password
protected area for uploads. You can even set it up to allow webdav
style transfers over https. This avoids any mail handling delays, lets
both parties know it got there successfully, and keeps the clutter out
of the mailserver.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
