Default Problem with emailing MIDI file

I am trying to send an exported MIDI file by email to a client who is using Logic Pro. The export process seems to work fine, but when the email is received it contains the word "Error" and is unable to be imported. (see graphic below). It seems to be a function of email, not PT or Logic.

Does anyone have an idea how to fix this? I've scoured the internet but can't find a solution.

Thanks!

I did, and it worked... thank you! This vital tip should be in the manual, or at least in a Read Me document! Christmas blessings to you! And I appreciate your tagline...

Documents frequently become corrupted or altered when attached to email. It’s pretty common practice to compress the attachment for safety.

This isn’t a Pro Tools thing.

It’s kinda rude to tell someone to shut up Janne.

When I found a comprehensive casino review on the website, I couldn't believe my good fortune. This review is a gold mine of information, illuminating the casino's reputation, game selection, and customer service https://topcasinosreviews.in/9winz-is-real-or-fake/ I'm glad I came across this review since anyone thinking about exploring the world of online casinos should read it.
Thanks!
I had to reinstall from scratch.
