You use the wizards in the SBS Console, there should be no reason to manually create a send connector.

specifically the connect to the internet, setup your internet address and configure a smart host

Demazter is right (as usual),  no need to set up your first send connector, however if you require extra send connectors follow this link ;

Are you setup to use a smarthost or DNS?

Do you have an ISP that blocks port 25?

Can you telnet to my SMTP service on outgoing.gkvirtualdomain.co.uk...?

just edit the Send Connector in the Exchange Management Console under Organisation configuration > Hub transport.

You will also need to ensure you have a rDNS (PTR) record configured otherwise some mail systems will reject your email.

no, there should be no reason to restart.
You might need to restart the Microsoft Exchange Transport Service
