I can't seem to increase the message size limits in Exchange 2007 on SBS 2008.

I've used the following two lines in the Exchange Management Shell to increase the message size limit to 40MB's and restarted the server but to no avail:

Set-TransportConfig -MaxReceiveSize 40MB -MaxSendSize 40MB

Set-ReceiveConnector “CONNECTOR NAME” -MaxMessageSize 40Mb

When I attempt to send a large message from outside the server it gets rejected.

What am I missing?
