    Upload it to internet (Eg Dropbox) instead and then just post a link to it.

    Use a free PDF maker (PrimoPDF) to transfer format and reduce size but only if you don't want the .doc file for any reason other than being readable.

    But dropbox or any of the other free file sharing sites is probably an easier option.

    Oh no, last time I tried to use Dropbox all hell broke loose, just cleaned up the mess, ended up with pop ups and sorts of stuff happening. I may have to forget the attachment, not worth the pain.
    thanks though

    Probably won't be fantastic compression if there are images embedded.
