because docx is compress format and needs less space.
for this reason, they send me all documents in docx format.

So have them save as doc format and zip them, sending you the zip file!

Yes, this is a good suggestion!

Using the file you (nasrin) sent me as an example:

original docx 221KB
saved as doc (in Office 2010) 874KB
doc+zip 193KB

Your best option is to ask your friend to save as doc in MS Office and then
zip. This way both can open and edit the file. You just need to add some
extra steps: extract the file, edit and then compress again.

Saving as ODT in MS Office 2010 (which has a similar size to docx)  is
unfortunately not an option in this case: MS Office will ruin the file if
you modify it in LibreOffice.

Hope this helps.
