exchange 2010 message size limit change

Is it possible to change the message size limit for receive and send message for only one or two mailboxes?
I saw in EMC console- Recipients | Mailbox -> select mailbox  | properties | Mail Flow Settings tab | Message Size Restrictions.  -----> do I have to change it only here or also somewhere else.
If I change it in organizational settings, and on send/receive connector what happens with mailbox settings for all users?

The above setting will work only internally

If you changed the user's properties below as you mentioned, It is more than enough, not required to any other specific configuration.

EMC console- Recipients | Mailbox -> select mailbox  | properties | Mail Flow Settings tab | Message Size Restrictions

Thanks.

For a single user, go to below path and change,
EMC console- Recipients | Mailbox -> select mailbox  | properties | Mail Flow Settings tab | Message Size Restrictions.


If you change it in organizational settings it will get affected for all the mailboxes.
