Well, it does seem redundant redundant if you ask me.;en-us;294736&sd=tech

"If you use smart host settings on SMTP connectors or specify smart hosts on
the properties of the SMTP virtual servers to try to control the flow of
e-mail between servers in the same organization, this may disrupt mail flow
in the organization. Only use SMTP connectors for intra-organization mail
flow if you have configured the Connected Routing Groups tab to allow e-mail
flow between two different routing groups and the Address Space tab is
empty. Also, do not configure a smart host on an SMTP virtual server unless
you only use that virtual server to send e-mail to an external system and
not to send e-mail to other servers that are running Exchange 2000 and
Exchange 2003 in the same organization. "

Interesting. On the VS, I have the smart host configured on the Delivery -
Advanced. This is on both servers.

There is also a connection call Internet Mail. That is configured with the
smart host as well, and lists both servers as bridge head servers.

I take it one of these is not needed.
