This has happened on two servers so far...

I swear...that on both servers...I have raised the message size limit in all three places needed from 10MB to 30MB

Once through Exchange Management Shell and once through the GUI

Somehow..the settings reverted themselves and I don't know how...

Any ideas?

Make sure that your server has all the windows updates.

Are you using this command to resize the max message size?
set-receiveconnector "Connector Name" -maxmessagesize 30MB

And this one to confirm the size?
get-receiveconnector | select identity,maxmessagesize

Have you reviewed the event logs for any errors?

Have you tried rebooting and then re-running the commands?

Hope one of those helps,
Jeff

Does it have to be done through the management shell?

I prefer GUI =).... I'm not up to speed on the Management Shell at all ... The server's been reboot...but haven't re-run the commands

You can try it through the GUI but if that doesn't work then open and command shell and try it there.

The Exchange Command shell can be a little intimidating, but just focus on this one command not and the millions of other things you can do.

1st, check to see what the current receive connectors are set to by running this command.
Get-ReceiveConnector | select identity, maxmessagesize

This will give you the name of all your connectors and their respective size limitations.

2nd, change the size limitations on your receive connector to 30MB.
Set-ReceiveConnector "ConnectorName" -maxmessagesize 30MB

3rd and last, recheck to see if the settings were applied by running the first command again.
Get-ReceiveConnector | select identity, maxmessagesize

I've also added a screenshoot of me changing the message size and then back again.
