Microsoft Exchange 2007 only accepts messages under 8MB

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

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Also to note

I have followed all the instructions listed here and I am still getting the error that the message is too large

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.
