    Try uploading the track to something like zippyshare and just text the link so your friend can download it?

    There are PC audio converters out there which will re-encode MP3 files. Google is your friend. Just re-encode it with a lower bit rate. I don't think switching from Stereo to Mono will affect the size much.

    Or use the cloud sharing option as noted by oleb84.

    Hope this helps.

    Based on compression attribute, we classify audio format into three categories: uncompressed, lossless compressed, and lossy compressed.

    MP3 is the lossy compressed audio format. To compress this kinds of files, you'd better to lower the bitrate or sample rate of them.

    Just Google search "Faa Audio Compressor - How to Compress WAV, MP3, AIFF, FLAC, WMA, etc on Mac and Windows?", there is a nice option.
