Automatic Backup Size Problem

We have been sending our backups automatically by email, but they have now exceeded our email attachment size limit.  Is there a way to compress the backup size (database cleanup or something similar)?  Alternatively, can the backup be sent to a network share?  I know it can do FTP, but our FTP server is a very busy beast and we would prefer not to add another layer to it if possible.
