Hello all,
I am needing some help.
We are in the process of migrating from exchange 55 to exchange 2k.
We have installed 2k into the 55 site.  We can send and receive mail with no
problems.
My issue is that all email sent from 2k goes out thru 55.
I have tracked messages & it shows them being mta'd over from 2k to 55.
Nothing goes out to the internet directly thru the 2k smtp.
Is this how it is supposed to be or have we missed a step?
This is driving me crazy & I can't find anything about this.

To reroute outgoing Internet e-mail through the Exchange 2000 Server computer
Configure a new SMTP connector on the Exchange server that you want to be the bridgehead server for outgoing Internet mail. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
265293 How to configure the SMTP connector in Exchange

Start the Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Administrator program, and then connect to the Exchange Server 5.5 computer.
In the Exchange Server 5.5 Administrator program, open the following location:
Organization\Site\Configuration container\Connections

Click Internet Mail Service, click Edit, and then click Delete.
In ADC manager, select the configuration Connection Agreement that you want, right-click the configuration Connection Agreement, and then click Replicate Now.
All outbound Internet mail now flows through the new bridgehead server. Locally-scoped address spaces are not permitted in Exchange 2000 Server environments. Only organization scopes and routing group scopes are permitted. For additional
information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Thank you for your reply.  
I just read thru the article you gave (again) and now I am really confused.
It says to create a smtp connector, but I thought I didn't need to create an SMTP connector.
Also can I have both the 55 with the IMS & 2k with the SMTP connector up at the same time??
I think the fog is starting to clear.  Again thank you for your help.

I believe you only need the connector in mixed environments.  If you have IMS with 5.5 and an SMTP connector on 2k running at the same time, it will simply default to the IMS connector.
