We have Exchange 2016 server and would like to increase the size of email to 50 MB. We can increase the size at send connector and at transport config to 50 MB with the following commands.

Set-SendConnector <Connector Name> –MaxMessageSize 50MB

Set-TransportConfig –MaxSendSize 50MB –MaxReceiveSize 50MB

However, I am not sure about the receive connector. As there are many receive connectors again one Exchange server so should I have to increase the limit of all receive connectors of Exchange server with the below command?  Please guide me on this case.

Get-ReceiveConnector | Set-ReceiveConnector -MaxMessageSize 50MB
