You can apply attachment size limits globally for the whole Exchange 2010 organization, or specifically for a particular connector or user objects.
Check this once.

If you want to receive or send 20MB, you need to set the size limit on the server atleast 20MB+(0.33*20MB) considering the fact that the MESSAGE SIZE BLOATS UP by 33% for MIME to MAPI and MAPI to MIME conversion.
