Have you considered a file transfer service such as yousendit.com?
File size might still be an issue I guess as they limit it to 100 MB
for their free account.  There's another thought.  Why not create
yourself a gmail account or other such online account that is as
forgiving as possible on file size and have her send it to that
account.  Probably the easiest solution of all, "Honey, use this email
address instead: xxxx".
