Please send us that file.
If possible also attach a (zipped) copy of your model and all necessary data files, which will allow us to reproduce the problem. In case there are confidential issues, you may send us a scalar version of your model, click here for instructions about that.
Our e-mail system can handle attachments up to a size of 15MB. If you have to send us larger files please use our file upload facility and send us the name of the uploaded file.
As a security measure to prevent potential viruses, our mail system does not accept executable files (such as files ending in .exe, bat, or cmd), even if they are sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz) format. Any message of this type sent to us will be bounced back you. Adding an underscore to the file attachment (e.g. file.zip_) will help.
