It also depends on the size set on the receive connector apart from the global limit.

If you don't modify the values in Receive connector, this will not work.

If you set user level send/receive size higher than Global/Organizational level then it works for internal purpose only and while sending mail to external recipient Global Level limit takes effect.

set the connector limit 15 MB. then control users limit from account properties. always make more general setting higher than specific settings for easier management.
