I believe the problems are because of his email provider blocking out
potentially risky attachments. Wouldn't be a first, I'm 100% sure google
does it, and since you can't even run a program in system access's file
manager, it'd come as no surprise that they'd be stripping messages off
of potentially dangerous files like executables or compressed archives.
Maybe Richard could use something like dropbox, or he could temporarly
change the file's extension to something like to .txt or something,
that'd most likely get it through the filters, and accessing them
afterwards wouldn't be a problem since the binary content would be intact.

That is good news regarding richard's dos games, however Michael, zip
files would indeed be the best way of passing them around.
To access zip files, just try 7zip from http://www.7zip.com/
all you need to do is right click or similar on the file in windows
explorer, select the 7zip item you want such as extract here to get
everything from the zip folder in your current location, or extract to
which will create a new folder with the contents of the zip archive in
7zip is a very easy to use program and should make access anything
zipped far easier, pluss this then means that if Richard or anyone
else wants to send aroung games this should make them fairly easy.
Beware the grue!
