Tring to increase the Maxprotocolerror because of invalid header message errors in the Event Viewer.

the exact command that i type in an elevated command shell is below (my server name is server).

Set-ReceiveConnector -Identity ($Env:server + "\Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receive" + $Env:server) -MaxProtocolErrors 500

This is the error i get:
Set-ReceiveConnector : Cannot bind parameter 'Identity'. Cannot convert value "
\Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receive" to type "Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.
Tasks.ReceiveConnectorIdParameter". Error: "'\Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receiv
e' is not a valid value for the identity.
Parameter name: Identity"
At line:1 char:31
+ Set-ReceiveConnector -Identity  <<<< ($Env:server + "\Windows SBS Fax Sharepo
int Receive" + $Env:server) -MaxProtocolErrors 500

Can anyone tell me exactly what i should be typing?

I am using a pop connector (please don't tell me i shouldn't be using pop connector, not my decision) on SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007 SP1 Update Rollup9.
