Hi, we are running Microsoft Small Business Server with Exchange 2007 I have set the storage limit to 20MB under Organization Configuration > Hub Transport > Global Settings > Transport Settings

Also under
Server Configuration > Mailbox > Mailbox Database > Properties > Limits
Server Configuration > Mailbox > Public Folder Database > Properties > Limits

All the users mailboxes are set to the database defaults

I am still receiving this error when I try to send files larger than 8MB (this particular file was 16MB)
"----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----

(reason: 552 Error: message too large)

----- Transcript of session follows -----

>>> DATA
<<< 552 Error: message too large
554 5.0.0 Service unavailable"

Does anybody know what I could be missing?

Thanks

Hi,

check your recieve connector for any limit.

Modify the recieve connector limit, use the below commmand

Set-ReceiveConnector -identity "Recive Connector Name" -maxmessagesize 20MB

If you set the limits on both the data stores and end/receive connectors. I'd recommend restarting the Exchange services and restarting Outlook. I've seen where some of these changes don't immediately take effect.

Since you use the SBS;I would recomend to recycle the services/restart the server, it should work ideally.  The link you mentioned above has explained every possible steps.
