CONTROLLING FILE SIZE? - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I've designed a simple 8' wide panel for my client to print...I can't email it, because it's 37MB and will choke my mail server. I reduced it to 10% original sze, and it's still 16MB..How can I control (I.E. reduce) the size of my Illustrator CS files?...

    Chris,

    Sounds unlikely that you will get that file down to an e-mailable size.

    Try deleting all unused swatches, Brushes, Styles and objects, and saving
    without PDF compatibility for as small a file as possible. Saving as PDF
    without retaining Illustrator editing capabilities and choosing suitable
    compression will also reduce the size.

    You could also try zipping the Illustrator file to achieve some compression
