How to create SMTP virtual server http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/exchange2003/exchange2003_virtual_servers.htm
Also see this for the relay http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/exchangesvradmin/thread/1789a917-6e4a-4a1a-9291-38ad5abdcf41
I am sure on the 2nd SMTP virtual server , you have given a different port number (other then 25 which is there on the 1st virtual server.)
You can also configure one more IP address on the network adapter (same or use another network adapter) and use that IP address to create new SMTP VS in case you don't want to change the default port.

i already did the same thing as vishal said , but when i add this SMTP VS for internet mail delievery it gives me relay access denied error, then now i turn on allow mail to be relay to the domain in smtp connector in SMTP connector , now its works but we cant enabled this because now my this server is open relay , we need to restrict this
please let me know how we can resolve this without turn on this option
If you want to create any additional SMTP virtual servers, you can use the New SMTP Virtual Server Wizard.
You can use the Exchange System Manager to configure the following settings for SMTP virtual servers:
Change the default setting of the TCP port.
Change the default setting of the SSL port.
Configure incoming connections and outgoing connections.
Configure IP address restrictions.
Configure domain name restrictions.
Configure authentication settings for incoming connections and outgoing connections.
Configure TLS encryption.
Configure the message size limit.
Configure a limit for the number of recipients.
Configure a limit for the number of messages allowed for each connection.
Grant/deny submit permissions for users/groups.
Change the SMTP queue location.
Configure message delivery based on retry intervals and message hop count.
Configure the server as a smart host or configure the server to forward outgoing e-mail to a smart host.
Enable reverse DNS lookup and define a reverse DNS list.
Specify the location where copies of non-delivery report (NDR) messages should be stored

i think i found the problem , i create the DNS entry name with the New IP address and i changed the FQDN in second SMTP VS on delievery-->advanced tab, after the name changed it gives me the relay error. if i give the FQDN for the Exchange machine it works
can we change this ,because in message header name should be changed because i already create the PTR record entry according to this FQDN
Please describe the detailed exchange topology, how’s the exchange server deployed?
Please enable diagnostic logging related to MSExchangeTransport on the problematic exchange server and post the log info
