Exchange 2010 maximun recievable message size

I'm trying to adjust the maximum size messages we can receive. I have a user who needs to get some 24M files. We can get them to a hotmail account. Anyway I went though and followed the steps as I found them here http://exchangepedia.com/2007/09/exchange-server-2007-setting-message-size-limits.html I didn't think A reboot was required but rebooted anyway but still can't receive larger messages. Is there another setting somewhere I'm missing

Probably have to adjuste the message size restrictions on the uses mailbox itself.  Go into the properties of the mailbox > Mail Flow Settings > Message Size Restrictions and check there also

Browse through this guide and verify our settings:

Now the other thing is some ISPs don't allow over 10mb - 20mb.  Might need to clarify that after verifying the exchange settings.

Do you have more than one server and/or more than one receive connector?
Check in Server Configuration > Hub Transport.  If you have more than one server, they should be listed on the top pane.  On the bottom pane, look at the Receive connectors tab.  For each server (and it's connectors), right-click > properties > adjust the maximum message size.

No just a single server and single receive connector

Are you able to get emails from the sender without attachments?

Is the sender getting a bounceback?

Can you get a large attachment from a different external sender?  What about internally?

No it is the same from all senders, I'll try internally

Do you use some sort of external spam filtering service?
