Outlook 2010 Exchange 2007 Rule Size Issue

I used the following command in an attempt to increase the rules quota on an Exchange 2007 mailbox:

set-mailbox -identity alias rulesquota(256KB)

This command processed within Exchange powershell, however, on the Outlook 2010 client the following message still appears after creating a new rule:

One or more rules cannot be uploaded to Microsoft Exchange and have been deactivated.  This could be because some of the parameters are not supported, or there is insufficient space to store all of your rules.

I re-created the Outlook profile to verify that Exchange was synching properly but the error still occurs.

Yes, I did that.  The message I received in return tells me that the size is set to the correct amount.  Do you know of a command that can be used to verify this from Exchange shell?

That command was helpful, I am able to clearly see that the account "RulesQuota" is set to 256 KB

Given this, I should be able to create new rules.  However, within Outlook I am still unable to

Is it possible to set the size higher than 256 KB?
