Exchange 2010 issues after adding a second Exchange Server for hub transport roles

Hi Everyone, wonder if you can assist with this:

Have an exchange 2010 standard server on a Windows 2012 domain.

As this server sits on a virtual platform we have installed GFI faxmaker on an old server so that we have readily available COM ports for the modem.

To install GFI fax we had to add the exchange hub transport role to the old server. This has effectively brought a second exchange server onto the network - am I correct in this?

Today we have experienced no outgoing emails, All the emails were queued on the second server. We have now overcome this by adding the second server to the SOURCE SERVER tab of the outgoing SMTP connector.

It appears that outgoing emails are being sent via the second exchange server or some kind of load balancing is occuring. We simply want the second server to handle faxes only and not act for mainstream email services.

Is there a way this can be stopped? As we have now lost our email disclaimers as these run on the original exchange server.

It all seems a bit overkill for what we want to do
