I have an exchange server that I'm trying to make allow 50MB file size send and receive limits. I've changed every send and receive connector I can think of and it still bounces back emails over 10MB. I will attach the powershell read out of the server in question.

Once you did all this did you try Restarting the Transport service and see if that helps ?

Organization Configuration->Hub Transport->Global Settings->Properties of Transport Settings

Send Connector
Organization Configuration->Hub Transport->Send Connectors->Properties of Default Send

Receive Connector
Server Configuration->Hub Transport->Receive Connectors Pane->Properties of Default <hostname>

We've reset the entire server but not the service specifically.

Is internally working fine ?

Thank you everyone. After leaving it for a few days just restarting it again it started working. I'd say it was the transport service this time.
