Max Message Size change in Receive connector not functioning

We increased our max message size to 15 MB from 10 MB. I updated the Global setting in the Organization section of the MMC.
I then changed the default Receive connectors to the increased size limit and successfully sent email of this increased size.
We had one Receive connector for all of our HubTransport servers used for those select  internal Servers that could relay SMTP email to outside recipients. I forgot to update the Max message size on this Receiver Connector to the increased valule.

I then updated this value and restarted the transport service on the server,

I still cannot send an increased size email through this server; the email is rejected for being too large.

can anyone think of what I am missing to get these new increased message size limis to work for this particular Receive Connector?
thank you.

I am running Exchange 2008 on Windows 2008 servers.

Have you increased send connectors limit as well at organizational and connector level?
Since you want to send increased size messages from those hub servers.......

yes the Send connector was increased and larger email from a user's outlook account has successfully been sent.
This is SMTP email from a sever. I was not able to get to your link from work because it is a game site and they are blocked.

Thank you

Looks like you'll need to modify the web.config file for the Exchange Web Services virtual directory.

Take a look here for details:

as it turns out this was an issue with the sending server. once that was corrected the email was delivered correctly.
I will give partial credit to Mahesh as he did point out the send connectos need to be set as well as the receive connectors.
