The limit is 50K.

Some attachments with extensions are scrubbed.

exe
bat
cmd
com
pif
scr
vbs
cpl

But that shouldn't be a factor.

We also have this:

Remove message attachments that don't have a matching content type:

multipart/mixed
multipart/alternative
text/plain

That may be a factor, but I can add other types if needed.
