In case you aren't doing so already, try having them encapsulate their a2w file in a zip file. The a2w file may be being corrupted by the email system somewhere along the way. I have had relatively good success in getting zip files through the various email systems.

A suggestion. Have your students put both the .a2w file and a small .txt or other simple file in a folder and zip the whole folder. Some e-mail systems seem to have problems with only .zip files (which is basically what .a2w files are) that are "zipped" again.
