In my many years of experience with email systems, it would be insane to permit email attachments to be any larger than 2 or 3 MB. No wonder you are having trouble! Most email systems I've ever seen have a limit, e.g. 4 MB or smaller, for the maximum size of any message they will accept.
There is such a thing provided for, in the mail standards (and supported by most reasonable mail applications), as splitting a large document up, into multiple (smaller) attachments on multiple messages, you know, and then re-assembling them in the client, back into the original document. I think you should look into this, or else use a real file transfer protocol instead!
