8Mb. Please note that an attachment gets encoded and this increases the message size by up to 60%. To send larger messages break them apart. Also ask the recipient if its OK to send a large email.  Also note that if you send a 1Mb message to 8 recipients you will exceed the 8Mb rule.

Also remember that most users are still connected via slow dialup connections.  Please have mercy on grandma and resize that image.  As a rule you should not use email to send any file bigger than 1Mb.  Use your web space or an FTP account.
