SBS 2003 to 2008 Std. with Exchange 2010 Public Folder Migration Issue

I followed a migration guide I found here on EE:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2881-Migrate-Small-Business-Server-2003-to-Exchange-2010-and-Windows-2008-R2.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+2003+2010+30+exchang

I am stuck at the end of step 8 trying to move/replicate the public folders from 2003 to 2010.
At first I noticed a couple thousand emails stuck in a queue because of a unreachable host.
I went to my 2003 ESM and created a routing group to connect both 2003 and 2010 servers. After that I cleared the queue and told 2003 to move all replicas to the 2010 server again. This time I see the emails going through the queue but nothing shows up on my 2010 server.

I am using a smart host that point to a SonicWALL ES200 spamfilter. Should that be removed?

Help!

Wiht public folder replication its really slow.Are you forcing to replicate.from 2003 ESM right click public folder and  click on send changes for last 1000 days what ever number you think is right.Then you can see the public folders getting replicated.

Using the Message Tracking Center on the Exchange 2003 server, I can look at the messages being sent, but when I open an individual message, it states the following:

SMTP: Store Driver: Message Submitted from Store
SMTP: Message Submitted to Advanced Queuing.
SMTP: Started Message Submission to Advanced Queue.
SMTP: Message Submitted to Categorizer
SMTP: Message Categorized and Queued for Routing.
SMTP: Message Routed and Queued for Remote Delivery.
STMP: Started Outbound Transfer of Message.

None of them say, "Messaged Transferred to (Exchange2010) through SMTP.

I figured it out...

I did have to remove the smart host and have Exchange process SMTP requests.
