Mail Routing Problems between Exchange 2003 and 2007

We currenlty have Exchange 2003.  I setup a new 2007 server and cannot send to or from a test account I created.  I have read several of the EE posts regarding routing problems and determined I do not have a smart host so I know that is not the problem.  Also, each server accepts a telnet to port 25.  I was following up on the suggestions regarding the routing groups and I am a little confused.  Via ESM I can see the routing group connector I created for the 2003 server as part of the 07 setup steps.  I do not see any connector under the 07 routing group.  Is this my problem?  Thanks!

In 2K7, your 2K3 routing groups will be under Send Connectors (Organization -> Hub Transport -> Send Connectors tab). If you don't see any, yes...that is a good possibility for the cause. :)

Yes, on the 07 side, I can see the connector I created in that location.  BTW, I can also see the test messgaes in both servers' queues.  Any other ideas?  Thanks!

I did not have a routing connecter on the server 07 side.  Here is the command for future reference.

From Exchange Management Shell, enter...

New-RoutingGroupConnector -Name "Interop RGC" -SourceTransportServers "2007Server.YourDomain.com" -TargetTransportServers "2003Server.YourDomain.com" -Cost 100 -Bidirectional $true -PublicFolderReferralsEnabled $true
