Connectors or Connections?
They are two very different things.

Connectors have to be created on the Exchange server and will be found under Connectors in ESM.
Connections are found under Current Sessions and are usually empty. It isn't unusual to find a few domains listed in there. If you have a PIX, make sure that Fixup SMTP is disabled as that can cause issues with SMTP email.
