Migrate Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 - New Server still send outbound mail via Old Server

I migrated my Old Exchange 5.5/NT to a new computer running Exchange 2003/Win 2003.  The migration went well.  I migrated all of the mailboxes and public folder.  I brought the old server down to test functionality.  Emails coming in from outside's fine.  Emails within domain are fine.  Emails going outside won't go through.  The queue showed them being stuck in the folder to forward to old server.  

In system manager:
Old Server - Protocol
* Message Transfer Agent

New Server - Protocol
* HTTP
* IMAP4
* NNTP
* POP3
* SMTP
* X.400

Connectors
* Internet Mail Service (Old Server)

Am I supposed to create another connector (SMTP) on the new server?  Is the new server still sending emails via the old server because of the Message Transfer Agent on the old server?  Please help.  Thank you.

You need to create a new SMTP Connector on the Exchange 2003 machine. That can be configured for DNS instead of smart host (unless you need to use a smart host).
