Hi David,
>From what you describe, you don't need a tutorial :). You did everything
I could always export successfully with Gmail. I also just configured a
yahoo account and tested again and I can get the file ok. So there must be
something going wrong with the sending in your email client.
The file is sent with plain xml mime type, so there should be no problems
there. Try with another mail client and see if you get the same problem.
