Mike,
        as more of the story comes out here I have a new suggestion. Since
Ivan is a mechanical guy, why not just export the PCB to ACAD DWG or DXF
format, export it and email it to him. He can open it in ACAD and make much
faster and more precise measurements. This is what I do to transfer PCB
information to our mechanical designers, even for myself I prefer checking
critical dimensions in ACAD anyday.
        But if you are sending DDBs by email zip them up, seems possibly the
mime formatting does something or other to them otherwise by my experiences.
When I sent a file to Ian first one failed similar to your failure, send one
that was zipped was just fine (much smaller too).
