I know that some broadband ISP's restrict the number of emails etc you can download in a month, but i would think you should be ok.
Just out of curiosity - is there no other way you can send your 9mb file? If you are on broadband then you will be ok, but if any of the recipients are checking email through a standard dial-up they are not going to be best pleased to be receiving a 9MB file that will take a long time to download.
Just a thought!
Jeez. 99% of the REAL WORLD does NOT have broadband access yet, no matter what people think!
Even with ADSL ... I would probably strongly consider it unless it was from a family member or good friend. Then I would just lambaste them face to face! :)
Some webmail suppliers only allow a 10mb inbox, so this file would leave practically no room for any other emails.

You could however consider some system whereby you email them a secure URL which will take them to a page that they can click to download the file - rather than using email.
Obviously this would need to involve some tight security so that Joe Bloggs can't come in off the street and download it whenever he chooses.
Send people an email with the direct URL of where to get the file from.
Do not email the file to anyone at all. Files that size sent by email will cause the recipients a LOT of problems.
