I've been fighting with this for 5 days now.  Can anyone tell me where I can raise this limit.  I'm simply trying to send an attachment .pdf that's about 24 MB and this is what I get when I try to do this in OWA to troubleshoot.  I've already gone back and forth with my global settings on my send and receive connectors from unlimited to limiting sizes but my problem always ends up back to this message.  Any help here would be gratefully appreciated.  Thanks!
