What is the size limit of an attached file for the SENDMAIL command? What
other limits exist for the command (number of destinations, subject line
length, text size, combined, etc.)? The limitations I am asking about are
for the actual implementation, not what the internet standards specify.

Yesterday I tried to send some picture and movie files (each in a separate
message) and received an error message reported by TCC that "data size" was
too large.

There is no limit imposed by SENDMAIL.

That's probably from the mail server, not SENDMAIL.
