I need to change the default 10MB Max Receive Size for exchange 2007 / SBS 2008.

I ran this scrip to get the default sizes (results below) http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Exchange-2007-Message-Size-514fbaf3

then I change Server Configuration > Hub Transport > Recieve Connectors > Default [ServerName] to 20MB which now reflected in the results below but the MaxReceiveSize is still 10MB

What do I need to do to change the default recieve size to 20MB?
