That depends on your email provider.

Comcast has an absolute limit of 25 mb for an email on a residential account and recommends that an attachment not exceed 10 mb.
If your ISP is not Comcast ask them what their limits are.

Today I successfully sent an attachment of 17.3 Mb.
It had been returned a couple days ago
when I tried sending that file along
with another graphics file
that took it to 20.6 Mb.
So I guess 20 Mb is my limit.
I use Comcast.

Remember that recipient may have different/smaller
limit imposed by his provider than you have with your
provider. You may be able to send and get error message
that it is over what recipient is allowed to receive.
You can open a free dropbox account, upload the file
to your account, and send a link to the recipient and
they can download the file using the link thus going
around email limits.

You can also use File Dropper.
File size limit is 5 gig. You upload the file and
when it is complete a link is generated that you can
copy and paste into an email or message.

Thanks, that's a good reminder.
Ha, the avatar for woodmeister is a picture of my first Apple computer. A Mac Plus.
Also, thanks to both of you for tips about DropBox and FileDropper. I'll check it out.
