I am trying to do: SET-SENDCONNECTOR -identity "MAIL\Default Mail" -MaxMessageSize 15MB, and I get the error  "The operation could not be performed because object 'MAIL\Default Mail' could not be found on domain controller 'MAIL.hprs.local'." yet that's exactly what's listed as the identity (see attached image).

what's my problem?

Nope, same error:
Set-SendConnector : The operation could not be performed because object 'dfa5f975-f0ac-40fe-a57d-f87d27534e5f' could not be found on domain controller 'MAIL.hprs.local'.

Set-sendconnector -Identity xxx -MaxMessageSize 100MB -domaincontroller <name of the local domain controller>

Use the above command by specifying the dc value

My fault after all. Apparently, the Identity is different for the Transport and the Connector (see code snippet). I did the following:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>SET-SENDCONNECTOR -IDENTITY "Windows SBS Internet Send MAIL" -MaxMessageSize 15MB


[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-sendconnector | List





AddressSpaces                : {smtp:*;1}

AuthenticationCredential     :

Comment                      :

ConnectedDomains             : {}

ConnectionInactivityTimeOut  : 00:10:00

DNSRoutingEnabled            : True

DomainSecureEnabled          : False

Enabled                      : True

ForceHELO                    : False

Fqdn                         : mail.ohprs.org

HomeMTA                      : Microsoft MTA

HomeMtaServerId              : MAIL

Identity                     : Windows SBS Internet Send MAIL
