Exchange 2007 Initial Configuration (Send Connector)

Environment:  Exchange 2007 is loaded and running error free in logs.  Exchnage sits on internal server (10.20.30.41) and have Firewall which has all rules set right.  DNS MX records point to ext firewall IP as well as SMTP.COMPANY.COM.  Here is the error I get in Queue Viewer.  What am I doing wrong?

Yeah, E2k7 inbound/outbound mail flow is rather stupid.

Fire up the ESM GUI, open "Organizational Configuration", click "Hub Transport".. and then make a new send connector.

My clients are 5-60 seat shops, so I have that send connector send to the clients' ISP's "smarthost".  (usually smpt.yourisp.com)..  



For inbound, in the ESM GUI, open "Server Configuration", click on "Hub transport".  There should be a "default SERVERNAME" connector.  Get the properties of that, click on the "Permission Groups" tab, check the first 4 of 5 checkboxes..  otherwise the smtp/receive requires AUTH, which ain't done for normal SMTP sessions..
