QB-Mac Does Not Offer a Portable Company File

QB-Mac only offers a Back-up file, it does not offer either the Portable Company File or Accountant's Copy (file) types which are available in the 'Windows' versions of QuickBooks.

Answer in article ignores size and security issues

It is really not a good idea to send QB files, in any format, by email. It is not a secure method of transmittal and many QB files, even portable files, may be blocked by either sender or recipient's email programs or ISP's due to size. I would recommend getting a subscription with a secure portal program such as sharefile, or egnyte to send or request files. Files sent using these services are encrypted, can be passworded, and have no size limitations.
