It is probably your e-mail software.  Some programs do weird things to attached
files, particularly I have noticed SAVFs.  I have noticed this mainly with
Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes.  Some mailers corrupt attached files, ie. 
you
can't unzip zipped files and SAVFs can't be sent as such.  Might be cheaper to
mail a tape.
