Unless maybe your distro has sendmail configured
to restrict the size of file attachments? As a anti-spamming
measure?

You mean as an attachment? Using mail - its very tricky. I would suggest using mutt instead.

mutt to@ddress.host -s "Subject of email" -a path/to/attached/file < path/to/body/of/message

Pine is also easy:

pine addressee -attach /path/to/attachment

and then you can type the subject, text, etc. in pine's 'window'. You can possibly also type in everything on the commandline, but I somehow preferred this way.
