For a passenger/cargo airlines I believe this is probably the largest.

The Il-86 was originally designed to have a T-tail and four rear-mounted engines, rather like a really fat Il-62. But the Ilyushin Design Bureau realized that there'd be serious weight penalties on that kind of widebody. In other words, a T-tailed Il-86 would've been far too heavy in the rear and thus requiring more powerful and less efficient engines. So Ilyushin decided to make the Il-86's design based on the A300, except that the Il-86 would have four engines.

Boeing did also consider a T-tailed twijet version of the 767 back in the late '70s, but chose the present design for practical reasons.

About 10 years ago Boeing were considering a 7J7. A T tail plane with 2-2-2 seatin in coach. I read the article someplace!

Two other military aircraft (though neither saw production):

Boeing YC-14, powered by two GE CF-6 turbofans
McDonnel Douglass YC-15, powered by four PW JT-8Ds

The latter evolved into the C-17; as for the former, one of two prototypes is now a museum relic.

As for commercial operations, I believe the Ilyushin Il-76, another 1970s design (featured in Tritanic's post), is the only one.

Wasn't the BAC-211 (maybe 311?) going to be a T-Tail with 2 RR RB.211s on its tail, but cancelled due to the Airbus A300?
