Exchange Servers Setup >> SMTP Connector

I am ready to start migrating one server to another. faster better service on
the same remote site. I am going to follow the directions that are on
KB822931 which is also the way I beleive you should do it, although there are
some variations because of our own specific details. My question is sould I
install the SMTP connector before or after I get my public folders synched
and have everything taken care of before i get the mailboxes in there. I have
a smtp connector for my current exchange server out there, but i do have to
put in a new one for my new box. Although here is another question. If I am
running native mode, do I even need a connector, my boxes are all 03 server
standard and I have a 03 exchange environment, the only thing I am trying to
accomplish is to send mail to the specific mailboxes that are on my remote
server which is in the same domain connected via VPN. I don't want to send it
all there, just those specific twelve mailboxes.

Can't see a need for a connector at this point. Your remote server can
have a smarthost entered on it's SMTP VSI that sends mail to the main
server rather than trying to route mail to the Internet directly. The
main server doesn't need any connectors or help to correctly direct
mail it receives for those 12 users.
