Does anyone know how to email an iMovie project in a format where you can open it up in iMovie and continue to edit it on a different computer?

It is not really possible to do this, except perhaps in a trivial case where your project has no video clips, photos, or music.
The reason is that an iMovie project is a text file in hexadecimal. It contains information such as the paths to the clips you use, including the in an out points, the paths to the photos you use in iPhoto, the paths to the music you use in iTunes, etc. It also contains information on your titles and transitions.
The actual media that you use in the project is located in the Event folder, in iPhoto, or in iTunes.
So having an emailed project would not do you any good. It would tell iMovie to look in a certain place to find the event clips, and they would not be there.
To edit a project on another computer, you will need an external disk drive which is formatted as Mac OSX Extended (journaled).
All moves need to be done wthin iMovie. For details, see the last two paragraphs of this User Tip.
