I'm trying to increase the size of messages on one of the connectors and I get the below, what am I doing wrong?

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>Get-ReceiveConnector | fl Id*

Identity : FP-SERVER1\Default FP-SERVER1
Identity : FP-SERVER1\Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receive FP-SERVER1
Identity : FP-SERVER1\Windows SBS Internet Receive FP-SERVER1

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>SET-SENDCONNECTOR -IDENTITY FP-SERVER1\Default FP-SERVE
R1 -MaxMessageSize 31457280
Set-SendConnector : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'FP
-SERVER1'.
At line:1 char:18
+ SET-SENDCONNECTOR  <<<< -IDENTITY FP-SERVER1\Default FP-SERVER1 -MaxMessageSi
ze 31457280

Is Default FP-SERVER1 the name of the send connector that you want to change message size limits ? because, Get-ReceiveConnector | fl Id* gets the receive connectors, not send connectors

Thanks thats put me partly on track. I've set the Send connector now with the max message size. What would be the command for setting the receive connector on FP-SERVER1 and Windows SBS Internet Receive FP-SERVER1 above?

SET-SENDCONNECTOR -IDENTITY "FP-SERVER1\Default FP-SERVER1" -MaxMessageSize 31457280

You need to put the name in " "

Thanks, had to wrap it on quotes but worked fine.

Think I was a bit to close to this to see the obvious! Cheers
