Message size limits are set in three different places: (1) the properties of the send connector; (2) the properties of the receive connector(s); and (3) the properties of each user's mailbox.  You need to check each of these locations to see what limits are set and change them as appropriate.

There is also a Global Setting for this as well. See screenshot below... The Mailbox message size is the most restrictive.
