When an Exchange 2007 Edge subscription is created and imported, MS states that send connectors are automatically created.  All MS documentation if have found states these are automatically created see below:

The EdgeSync synchronization process provisions the following Send connectors:

    * A Send connector that is configured to relay e-mail messages from the Exchange organization to the Internet
    * A Send connector that is configured to relay e-mail messages from the Edge Transport server to the Exchange organization

My question is will these connectors be visable in the EMC?  My console does not show them but MS illustrations show that they are visible.  Edge is new to me so I don't know what to trust.....Thanks.

If it is not visible in shell - it is not present - how do you see its presence ?? practically speaking shell is the place you should be able to see the connectors from,

Is Hub transport using those connectors by-passing Edge ?

Thank you all for your comments.  I believe I found the answer to my question.  See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb266920(EXCHG.80).aspx.

The customer who set up the Edge server suppressed the creation of the connectors during subscription.  They use a third party external smart host to route mail therefore they had to manually create the send connectors.  I was thrown  because I could not see the connectors with the default names EdgeSync - <Site Name> to Internet and EdgeSync - Inbound to <Site Name>.   Thanks again for all the quick responses.
