    Have tried several ways but it always comes up blank, or it states file not supported. Cannot even send it to myself. What am I missing?
    Thanks.

    Sounds like your email does not recognize/support .rkt files. Just archive the file with WinRAR, WinZip or 7-Zip and attach it to the email.

    Try using WinRAR and make it a .RAR file - some special MS email clients block .zip's by default.

    One technique I use to get past email filters (somehow I can say this with a straight face as I work in infosec) is to simply rename the file extension from .rkt to .rk_ or even .docx. Then have the recipient rename it back to .rkt.

    Many email filters still just look at the extension of the file rather than "deep" inspecting the file to see what it really is.
