Here is a Link to a Good Instructional guide to send size's in exchange 2007

The command in the Exchange shell is as follows

Set-Transportconfig –maxreceivesize (insert size here using something like 10MB)
Set-Transportconfig -maxsendsize (insert size here using something like 10MB)\

These effects will not be seen immediately you will A. Have to give it time to propagate or B. Restart Exchange Transport Service

You can restart the service in services.msc

by default its 10mb ,  but there are 4 places to set it

User, org, send, recieve connectors

If you open EMS do the following

get-transportconfig | fl -- this will give Org level
Get-ReceiveConnector  | fl server,maxmessagesize -- recieveconnector (which affetects internal sending)
Get-SendConnector  | fl server,maxmessagesize  -- external send limit
Get-Mailbox yourmbx | fl maxsendsize,name -- user limit

ok i did both of these..set to 100:

Set-Transportconfig –maxreceivesize (insert size here using something like 10MB)
Set-Transportconfig -maxsendsize (insert size here using something like 10MB)\

now i get:
get-transportconfig | fl   shows 100mb for both MaxSendSize and MaxReceiveSize

but this command:
Get-ReceiveConnector  | fl server,maxmessagesize
still shows 10MB for both servers...

how do i change that??
