Setting external message size to be larger than internal?

Most of the articles I've seen say how to make internal larger than external.  I'd like to do the opposite, and I feel like i've exhausted my combination of options.

I'd like external to be 25MB, and internal to stay at 10MB.

On Edge Transport server:
-  Default receive connector set to 25MB

On Hub Transport server:
-  Edge synced inbound/outbound send connectors set to 25MB
-  Global Transport Settings set to 25MB max receive/max send size
-  Default receive connector set to 25MB

I found I was unable to receive a large attachment from the outside unless the last option, Default receive connector, was set to 25MB.  Unfortunately, I think that's what's allowing the internal mail limit to raise to 25MB as well.

Thanks in advance for any help.

ok. as you want to limit the internal limit... then i will suggest you limit Users send limit to 10MB. .... so in this case no users will be able to send more than 10 MB size..
and you already did to get mails for 25MB from outside so users can get 25 MB size from outside...

The only way i see this possible, is to limit your send connector to 10MB, so users will not be able to send attachments bigger than 10MB both internally and externally, but they will always receive a 25MB if you keep your recive connector at 35 MB.

Kind of as I expected then... it would seem that the 25MB will be the ceiling for users for internal/external.  It's only possible to customize the external limit.

Thanks anyway!
