Something way less than 119...  Marketing and HTML mail combine to
produce some horrendous results, and all because they used to send web
links to download the images, and the Microsoft put a stop to that for
98% of their customers.

Probably more than the default 20.

To my mind, anything more than 40 is pushing the bounds of credibility -
the next thing you'll see is spam mail made up of 50 separate 10x10
images which are loaded into a table to create something readable.
