Exchange 2003 to 2010 migration

I am doing a migration from 03 to 10.  I have added the new server to the domain, created a routing connector, and moved one mail box over to the 2010 box.  Internally I can send between the two mail servers, and I can send externally from both.

My problem, I can not send from the Internet to the 2010 server.  I have also noticed that all my outgoing mail is going through the 2010 server, I have not changed my mx record yet though, so incoming mail is going to my 2003 server.

I am thinking I got the routing connector wrong wanted to see if anyone has insight.  Thanks in advance.

If you didn't have an SMTP Connector on Exchange 2003, then Exchange 2010 would have created a Send Connector. Exchange 2003 will see that as an SMTP Connector and route email through it to the internet.
If you want email to go out via the Exchange 2003 server, create an SMTP connector in ESM and delete the Send Connector in Exchange 2010.

Did you create the RGC bidirectional? Do you see outbound email in the Exchange 2010 queues?

Yes I have outbound mail on the 2010 server.  Any idea why mail coming from the outside will hit the mailboxes on the 03 server but not the 2010 server?
