Maximum IMAP Message Size Limit not just MTA Size Limit

Hello Folks,
I have been using IMAPSYNC to extract all the email from our Old IMAP server and import it into our brand new Zimbra Server..... anyway Zimbra refuses to except messages greater than 10MB in size...... how can I adjust the Zimbra Message Size Limit to be greater than 10MB or preferably Unlimited.... we have huge hard drives and lots of bandwidth so we don't care about size limits or quotas.
Later guys

You can change the message size limits in the admin console.

OK, Well I adjusted the "Maximum Message Size" to be 2097151 kb and I still get this problem when transfering files from my Courier IMAP server to the Zimbra IMAP server that refuses to allow messages over 10MB to be sent.
it seems that "Maximum Message Size" Setting only applies to SMTP transfers and not IMAP.... there must be a way of adjusting the maximum size of IMAP message.

very interesting....

now what would happen if we went
zmprov mcf zimbraFileUploadMaxSize 0
would that make it unlimited?
and does setting the Maximum Message Size to 0 in web interface make the smtp message size unlimited as well?

Yes, setting it to zero should be unlimited. :)

there's no web interface for this? incase i don't want any email more than 1 MiB stored in my inbox.
edit: there is.
Does Maximum message size (kb) applies for both sent and received mails?
