How do you e-mail a database?

I want to share my database with another Act user who has the same Act version and layout that I have.  I am having difficulty figuring out how to send it as an attachment through my Yahoo ISP e-mail.  Additionally, it appears that I cannot zip the database either.


Thanks in advance for your response.

Re: How do you e-mail a database?

Would that be a one time event? Are you wanting to coordinate the data in the database? You can create a backup ZIP file using File | Backup Database in the ACT! program but the ZIP file will likely be too large to send as an email attachment.
