What's the best format for sending pictures by email?

I am using Outlook Express 2003 and I often wonder what is the best type of picture configuration to use when sending an email to a friend or colleague.. Is it jpeg,BMP,gif or what? I know that jpeg is a compressed picture that I am told is "lossy" and I can see that bmp is humungous as far as size but better in resolution.I also see gif used in webpages but is it applicable to sending pictures in email?
When I want to send a picture to someone using Hotmail I usually run up against their restriction of capacity.(this used to be 2meg)so pictures soon become an impossibility.
Any thoughts anyone?
