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

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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.
