the files and email the compressed form, it will save time and space.

In any case,
we will provide a timely solution. If we cannot fix the problem right
away, we will work to create a "work-around" so that you may
continue your modeling efforts. Please describe your problem in as much
detail as possible; be sure to include information about which version
you are running and which component(s) are involved. Tell us who you
are (name, company, etc.) and the best way to contact you. We strongly
encourage you to send us the files needed to reproduce the problem at
our site. We find it is much easier to fix problems that we have "in
hand". If you are concerned about the sensitivity of your data,
we will be happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement that protects any
sensitive data that may be contained within the files that you send
to us. Just send us (email, fax, or snail mail) your agreement and we
will sign it and return it to you.
