While .pdf files don't usually compress very well, you can use a utility like 7-Zip or WinZip. You need to verify that whoever you send the file to has the understanding and capability (software) to uncompress the file when they receive it.

7-Zip's ".7z" format has a better compression ratio (i.e.-makes smaller files) than WinZip's ".zip" format, but whoever you send it to would have to have a program that could decompress it. 7-zip can also compress to the ".zip" format as well. Also, 7-Zip is free whereas WinZip isn't.

WinXP can uncompress .zip files natively, but not much else. Earlier versions of Windows have to have a compression program installed.

sml123 you could load it up to something like below:

60.80MB maxium single file size free wait 40 sec's before download commences:

2GB (free)

... after upload download links will be generated.

... alternatively you could split the files and email them:

I doubt you can compress it much but you can try. Use a self extracting version so the person at the other end can just open.
PDF's are web centric because they are compressed a lot.

19 pages shouldn't be much of a file unless you have multimedia in it.

I'd suggest you cut it down to a few pages or so at a time.
