It can be a fun challenge to pull every trick before encoding to make it sound as if it's not a low bitrate mp3. I think it was Mandy Parnell who said something like "that's real mastering", or at least what mastering used to be - making a lower fidelity delivery format still sound good.
Not meaning to be patronising Tim, but you do know there are apps available where you can send fairly chunky data sets for free? (I don't mean Dropbox, Googeldrive et al...)
I've used several, but of late I've settled on WeSendIt https://www.wesendit.com/ as it's reliable, simple to use and, most importantly, easy for the recipients to access the sent files.
Just a thought...
