Outlook 2011 for Mac Send email limitation

I have researched and researched and cannot figure out why Outlook 2011 for Mac cannot send and email attachment of more than 10MB in size.  I have changed the sending and receiving limits on exchange in the web.config files for owa and ews and also the personal mailbox limit for this individual.  We also have him set up on Mac Mail which he is able to send the same attachment through exchange.  We can send the same attachment through web access with his account so it is obviously, an Outlook 2011 for mac issue.  

This client upgraded to Exchange 2007 and Office 2011 for Mac because Outlook now works directly with exchange but this issue is putting a damper on the whole experience for him.  Any help is appreciated.

Look at your EWS web.config file (%programfiles%\microsoft\exchange server\clientaccess\exchweb\ews)
Verify that you have increased the maxRequestLength

Below is my web.config file in this directory.  At least most of it as I left out the middle of it which did not have maxRequestLength.   Bottom line, the maxrequestlength is not added and i am not sure where to add it or if I should?

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Ok, it looks pretty much the same except that I am missing the <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="13280" /> right after the <system.web> and before httpModules.  Have you seen a web.config file that was missing the maxRequestLength before and is it safe to add it?  thanks.

ok, found another post where the maxrequestlength is missing from the web.config file in ews.  Not sure if I could just add it or not but this could be the solution!  Anybody else seen this before and did you find a solution?  The maxrequestlength is in the web.config file under owa but not ews.
