Errm, unless you've typo'd your message you appear to have set the limits to
2Mb  (2048Kb). 20Mb would 20480Kb.

        I have a single Exchange 2007 server and I'm having trouble figuring
out why I'm unable to receive messages with attachments from the Internet.
I've increased the sizes at the following to 2048KB:
        Global Settings\Transport Settings
        Receive Collector Limit
        Send Collector Limit
        MaxLimit (User mailbox)
        Sender & Recipient Size Limits
        ADSIEdit - Global Settings\Message Delivery
        I've done all of this and I'm still unable to receive email and
attachments over 5MB. Here's a snippet of my NDR: 
        This message exceeds the maximum message size allowed. Microsoft
Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please make the
message smaller -- by removing attachments, for example -- and try sending it
again, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.
        #550 5.2.3 RESOLVER.RST.RecipSizeLimit; message too large for this
recipient ##rfc822;me@xxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:rfc822%3Bme@xxxxxxxxxxxx> 
        The size of this particular message is 7MB and if I download the
message from gmail to my laptop I'm able to forward it internally to my
users. I've read up on content conversion and therefore understand that this
7MB file could be increased by 33%. This is why I increased everything to
20MB. I've also been advised that the limits have been raised at the spam
filter to 20MB. I don't believe this so I'm trying to make sure I've done
everything I'm suppose to on my end before I get into with anyone else. 
        Any responses appreciated.
