I need to setup a internal smtp server because i need to be able to use the Database mail functionality in SQl srv 2008.
I've googled a setup option :
http://blog.powerbiz.net.au/exchange/how-to-set-up-an-internal-smtp-service-for-windows-server-2012-essentials/
and i configured everything excluding the setting up of SMTP service no 6 where i didn't enter a smart host which i pressume is only used externally.

Is there something else that needs to be done?

If you have an SBS server, why not just the Exchange that is built in to that to send the emails through. No need to install anything else.

Ok, so within the Exchange Console at the Hub Transport, what needs to be done now and how do i test if the internal smtp server is functioning correctly?

That depends.

If the application can be set to authenticate, then there is nothing you need to do. Just configure the application to use TLS, use port 587 and point it at the server with credentials.

If you cannot use authentication, then you will need to setup an additional Receive Connector to allow the application to relay.

This guide written by the Exchange product team is for Exchange 2007, but the process is identical with Exchange 2010. http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2006/12/28/3397620.aspx

Do not change the existing connectors because that will break the functionality of SBS.
