Internal mail between two exchange servers not flowing

I am running Exchange 2003 SP2 on WK3 SP1. I have installed a second Exchange 2003 SP2 on a WK3 SP1 server in the same domain. I wanted to move everything from the first exch1 sever to the second exch2 server and then decommission exch1. I tried to replicate the public folders but they didn't replicate.  I then created a new account on exch2 and tried to send email.  I can send and receive outside mail but not internally.  The mail just sits in the queue until it times out.  I ran SMTPdiag and it is fine, the names are resolved in DNS, and I can telnet to both servers. I have turned the logging up and the only thing that is logged is Event ID 9302.   I have tried everything I have research on this issue and nothing is working.  I need to get these two servers talking ASAP.

This is the Event ID: 9302 I received.

The transport configuration type 2 for the directory entry with DN or GUID CN=MICROSOFT MTA,CN=CYCLONE,CN=SERVERS,CN=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP,CN=ADMINISTRATIVE GROUPS,CN=TESTEXCH,CN=MICROSOFT EXCHANGE,CN=SERVICES,CN=CONFIGURATION,DC=TESTEXCH,DC=PSU,DC=EDU is not one of the supported values. Reconfigure the transport configuration type in the identified directory entry. [BASE IL OPERATOR 24 217] (8)

Yes both servers are using SMTP with port 25.  I  have a smarthost configured on the SMTP VS of the existing Exchange servers. Will this cause problems?

I removed the smarthost from the Advance delievery options and now the mail is flowing between my servers.  I'm a newbie so could you explain why this stopped communications between my exchange servers
