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
